PREFACE. 



Some introduction may be necessary to a work like the present, to explain its 
nature and establish its utility. To translate a translation when both the original 
and a direct version of that are in our hands appears a thankless task, and yet it 
may not be difficult to show that so peculiar is the case of the Septuagint as 
to vindicate a process which if adopted with regard to any other work would 
be comparatively useless. 

There '^^ is little doubt that part of this Version was made towards the com- 
mencement of the reign of Ptolemy Philadelphus about the year b.c. 280. The 
Jews of Alexandria whether by his command or of their own accord translated a 
portion of the Scriptures into Greek. The popular story of the seventy-two Inter- 
preters, attributed to Aristseas, may be dismissed as a fabulous legend; though we 
have internal evidence from the very words of the version that the writers 
belonged to Alexandria or at least to Egypt. 

This portion when completed was referred to the Jewish Sanhedrim at Alex- 
andria, and revised and approved by them, which circumstance was probably the 
real origin of the name Septuagint. The remaining part of the Translation was 
executed at different periods, and, as the wide diversity of style would lead us to 
suppose, by different hands. 

We proceed to notice the principal advantages to be derived from the study of 
this ancient version, on which of course the utility of any translation made from it 
must depend. 

The Septuagint either agrees with the Hebrew, or it differs from it. If it 
agrees, the manifest coincidence of the oldest version extant will form an 
interesting evidence of the purity of the original text, — of the fidelity of the 
version, and also, — of the correctness of our own translation, the authorised 
English Bible. 

On the other hand, if the Septuagint does not agree Avith the Hebrew, many 
considerations naturally occur to om- minds, involving questions of greater or less 
magnitude, but of deep interest to such as prize the integrity and inspiration of 
Scripture. Such are — the purity of the Hebrew text — the correctness of our 
English Translation — the value, antiquity and genuineness of the Hebrew points — 
the degree of sanction given by the Apostles to the Septuagint by their quotations 
from it in the New Testament, especially where those quotations are accompanied 
with variations from the Hebrew— the effects which such discrepancies should have 
upon our minds with regard to the extent of inspiration. 

Happily for the Church of God, the grand questions of the Inspiration of 
Scripture, of the Purity of the sacred text, and the Correctness of the English 
Version do not remain to be settled. Nor if they did would the writer of these 
pages venture to discuss them. Here he may safely assume that they are settled. 

All that he has to do is to notice the bearing which a comparison of the 
Septuagint with the Hebrew has upon the subjects above referred to. 

It cannot be denied that there are cases in which the Septuagint appears as a 
Avitness in favour of the unpointed text. Remove the points and the Hebrew is

PREFACE. 

found on some occasions to speak the language of the New Testament. Perhaps 
we can hardly select a more striking instance of this than is afforded by Gen. xlvii. 
31, compared with Hebrews xi. 21. We will give the quotation at full length that 
our readers may understand both the difficulty and the solution. In the English 
version of Heb. xi. 21, Jacob is said to have worshipped, leaning on the top of his 
staflF: (according to the Roman versions, worshipped the top of his staff). 

The following is a literal quotation from the Septuagint of Genesis Avith which 
the English version is at variance : 

Gr. ■KpocTfK.vvqaev iin to ciKpov rrfs pd^8ov avrov. 
Eng. Ver. bowed himself upon the bed's head. 

The difference is occasioned by the punctuation of the Hebrew, the Septuagint 
Translators reading ntDO matte, staff, the English Translators n;2p mittah, bed. 

The -writer believes this instance to be one of the strongest, if not the very 
strongest that can be adduced in favour of the unpointed Hebrew text, as far as the 
Septuagint is concerned. 

Closely connected with the subject of the Hebrew points is that interesting 
question, How are we to reconcile the apparent discrepancies between the Apostolic 
quotations in the New Testament and the Hebrew original ? (/. e. in those cases 
where neither the change nor obliteration of the points would help us.) For the 
apparent mistranslations are quoted by the inspired writers. One or two instances 
will suffice. The Septuagint rendering of Psalm iv. 4, is 'Opyl^arde koi p.rj ufiapTaviTe, 
Be ye angry and sin not. These words are quoted by St. Paul Eph. iv. 26. The 
meaning of the Hebrew (according to the English Version) is, Stand in awe 
and sin not. 

Again, the literal rendering of the Hebrew in Prov. xi. 31, is, Behold the 
righteous shall be recompensed in the earth, much more the Avicked and 
the sinner. But the Septuagint version of the words is, 'Et 6 p.ev hUaios 
fioKis (Tw^tTat, 6 d(Tfj3fjs koi afiapraiXos nov (pavelrai ; If the righteous scarcely be 
saved, where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear ? This passage is familiar 
to our readers as part of the first Epistle of Peter, iv. 18. Now allowing 
that the first instance is a more literal rendering of the original than the common 
one, it will hardly be said that the verse in Proverbs is more than a paraphrase 
of the Hebrew.* 

The question, we must remember, has been throughout, not are such citations 
consistent with the general tenor of Scripture truth ? but do they interfere with or 
destroy the doctrine of plenary verbal inspiration ? Tlie writer believes they do 
not, and (to present the argument in as condensed a form as possible) chiefly for 
this reason, that what was uninspired before quotation becomes inspired after ; or 
rather quotation by the Holy Ghost is the very stamp and seal of inspiration 
affixed to the words at the moment He condescends to use them. If God can 
employ human means, including human words and phrases too, not the pure 
tongue of Paradise, but language in itself (till purged by Him) Avitnessing to the 
pollution of man's sinful lips, may not tlae Heavenly Dove light upon truth, 
Avhich has been ignorantly perhaps, foolishly, perversely uttered, and yet truth, 
and therefore infinitely precious, because of its capacity to minister to the spiritual 
Avants of the children of God? If any think this language too strong let them 
refer to Tit. i. 12, 13, Avhere Ave have the testimony of inspiration itself to assure 

* In accounting for St. Paul's quotation of what was not exactly the Old Testament we may gain some assistance hy 
refernnK.to (luotations which were not made from Scripture at all. In Acts 17. 2«, we find " As certam also of your own 
poets have said, ' For we are also his offspring.' " But it is ohicctcd, There Paul introduces the quotation hv an appro- 
priate description, " As certain of your own poets liave said.'* Let us then take another instance, 1 Cor. 15. :«, " Kvil 
communications corrupt good manners." This is (juoted without any introiluction at all. But a more formidahle 
ohjcction remains behind. There was no danger, it might be said, of the rest of Menander's works being mistaken for 
inspiration, because of a solitary ijuotation from them, there in danger of the whole of the Septuagint being considered 
an inspired work, if St. Paul quotes any part of it. But docs this consequence necessarily follow? Let us imagine a 
parallel case with the circumstances slightly varied. Sujipose Paul an inspired writer or preacher in this countrv at the 
present time. Is it inconsistent with the idea of plenary verbal insjiiration to conceive that he could (juote Sternhold 
an<l Hopkins with or without some such introduction as the following, " As your own metrical version has it." The 
writer considers that this is (piite possible, and believes also that it would by no means follow that the Old Version of 
the Psalms was inspired, or even that the whole of it was soun<l. If so, much more probable is it that the Apostle 
would have quoted the authorised proac translation, and more probable atiU that he would ciuotc the Septuagint among 
the Greeks, which he did. 



PREFACE. 

us that God can take words of one nationally and as it were constitutionally a liar 
and add this sanction, This witness is true. 

Much confusion and difficulty may indeed be avoided if we bear in mind that 
it is throughout a question not of oriyinality but of msjnration, save that whatever is 
good anywhere must of course be original with the Father of lights, whatever the 
channel through which it happens to flow. 

In reply then to the question, how far does the apostolic quotation of a part of 
the Septuagint warrant the inspiration of the whole ? Ave venture to state that it is 
no warrant at all. What the Holy Ghost touches it halloAvs — beyond this 
the translation, whatever its excellence, comes into our hands as the work of 
fallible man. 

As such, however, it is highly valuable. It is not only a translation of the Old 
Testament, but it is the Old Testament translated into the language of the New. 
Let it be remembered that the Gospel was in its aspect to the world a Hellenistic 
thing. In the providential designs of God " the Roman Avas the herald to 
proclaim silence to the Avorld, the Greek was the interpreter." And this was in 
keeping Avith the extension of the Gospel to the Gentiles. It did not merely 
facilitate the grand scheme of universal preaching, but Greeks, in the language of 
Scripture, Avere Gentiles and Gentiles Avere Greeks. See John vii. 35; Rom. i. 14. 
There is reason to believe that the very knoAvledge of HebrcAv now existing 
among us has been Avon, in measure at least, by the patient labour of many Avho at 
one time or ■ another diligently compared the original Scriptures Avith the Sep- 
tuagint. 

There is indeed one benefit of a still higher order to be derived from this 
version than even the elucidation of the HebrcAv Scriptures. This is the correc- 
tion of the HebrcAV text itself. There is danger, doubtless, of pressing this 
argument too far, and of Aveakening the confidence of the multitude in our copies 
of Scripture, but a very few instances Avill serve to establish the value of the 
Septuagint in this respect Avithout unduly or falsely lowering the reputation of the 
HebrcAv.'^ In Genesis iv. 8, the HebreAv is rendered in the English version Cain 
talked with Abel his brother. But the analogy of the HebreAv language requires 
that the Avords should rather be translated Cain said to Abel his brother (the 
words of the speaker following). These AVords the Septuagint supplies, " Let us 
go into the field." Again, Deut. xxxii. 43, the foUoAA^ing words occur in the Septua- 
gint, " Rejoice, ye heavens, Avith him and let all the angels of God Avorship him." 
This passage does not occur in our present HebreAV copies, and yet they are 
quoted in the epistle to the HebrcAvs i. 6. Another very remarkable instance of 
the use of the Septuagint in thus correcting the Hebrew is afibrded ^y the omis- 
sion of a verse in one of the acrostic Psalms, (cxliv. 13), where the order of the 
alphabet requires that it should begin Avith J. This Averse also the Septuagint 
supplies. 

This may be a suitable place for a fcAV AVords in explanation of the obeli 
and asterisks of Origen. If the Septuagint does not perfectly accord Avith the 
HebrcAv, there are only t\vo ways in one or both of which they can possibly diff'er. 
1. By the HebreAv containing Avhat is omitted in the Septuagint. 2. By the 
Septuagint containing Avhat is omitted in the HebreAV. In the former case Origen 
supplied the omission from some Greek translation then extant (chiefly that of 
Theodotion) and marked the inserted Avords Avith an asterisk; m the latter he 
affixed an obelus to those passages of the Septuagint to Avhich there Avas nothing in 
the HebreAV to correspond. These tAVO signs contribute poAverfuUy to establish 
the superior claims of the Vatican copy. For on the one hand this copy contains 
those passages Avhich early Christian Avriters represent as having been omitted in 
the HebreAV, but supplied and obelised by Origen. On the other hand of those 
passages Avhich occur in the HebrcAV but not in the Septuagint, and are said to 
have been marked Avith an asterisk by Origen, not one appears in the Vatican.

PREFACE. 

It may be urged, and that in connexion with what has been already said, 
that there are many reasons for imhlishing the Septuagint, but few for translating 
it. Let scholars, it may be said, make the most of it, and give others the benefit 
of the comparison, but the unlearned Avho are confined to translations may be 
satisfied with the translation of the Hebrew. Beyond this things might be left to 
find their own level. Let the Greek Septuagint be published in a cheap and 
accessible form and the march of mind will soon supply readers. 

But the march of intellect is not the march of literature. If the reading 
population of the country promises to double itself in a few years, the thinh'tig 
part of the community increases at a still more rapid rate. And their judgment 
of books must sometimes precede the reading of them. To inform this judgment 
is one great use of translations. It is well worthy of consideration (strange as it 
may appear) that the studies of the learned are, and to a certain extent must be, 
directed by the unlearned. These cannot indeed teach what they do not know, 
but they can decide what shall be taught, a material difierence which has been too 
frequently overlooked. The sons of widows, of commercial and military men, of 
tradesmen and mechanics, whose success in business enables them to aspire to a 
better education for their children than they have themselves enjoyed, these if they 
receive a learned education at all, have a learned education chosen by their 
parents, who frequently know very little what theu* children are taught. They 
have read it may be Pope's Homer and Dryden's VirgU, beyond this their 
acquaintance with the books their children are reading does not extend. 

It is a just remark, we believe, of Archbishop Whately, that it would be well if 
a translation of the plays acted at Westminster school were put into the hands of 
the boys' mothers. If a translation of bad books is useful to teach parents what 
to refuse, still more desirable is a translation of good books to teach them what 
to choose. Why then, it may be asked, is the Septuagint so little known and so 
little valued ? The answer is Because it has not been translated. 

On the subject of the preference that should be given to sacred studies in the 
education of children we may learn even from Roman Catholics, one of whom 
represents the Septuagint as a most suitable introduction to the study of profane 
Greek writers.* Our readers are familiar with the history of a king of Pontus 
who endeavoured in his old age to poison himself, but the antidotes he had taken 
in his youth happily rendered the attempt ineffectual. Too frequently in the 
education of children professed Christians and Protestants reverse this order. The 
poison is taken first and in youth, the system is deeply inoculated with it, the 
antidote if taken at all, is taken too late. We are Avell aware of the grand objec- 
tion to the introduction of the Septuagint into schools, viz. that the Greek is not 
classical. Not to provoke the hostility of the whole learned world by venturing a 
word against Homer, why should not the Septuagint be allowed a place as well 
as Theocritus ? The study of selections from this poet is considered to interfere 
little with the general attainment of a knowledge of Greek, though the dialect 
varies far more from the attic purity of Thucydides and Xenophon than does the 
Septuagint. 

One effect that might be anticipated from the growing attention on the part of 
Christians to the whole Word of God and to the Hebrew Scriptures in particular, 
is, that the credit of the Septuagint would suffer in consequence. The writer 
is of opinion that the reverse will be the case. The effect may be indeed to 
lower the extravagant pretensions of those of its admirers Avho Avould exalt it to 
the disparagement of the Hebrew, or claim for it the rank of an inspired composi- 
tion; but this will only reduce it to its just level, that of an extremely useful 
translation. 

The dangerous acquirement of a little Hebrew learning will be less likely 
to flatter its possessor, when it is shared with many others, or improved into 
a competent acquaintance with the language and its difficulties. The Septuagint

PREFACE. 

will be welcomed not indeed as the rival, but the handmaid of the Hebrew 
Scriptures, the pleasing tribute of Gentile literature to the House of God; who 
from the midst of all the infidelity and error that darken the earth can elicit 
blessings for his people ; who could make the inauspicious land of Egypt at one 
time a shelter for ' the young child' from the jealousy of a Jewish king, at another 
the faithful repository of the -svi-itten Word. The Jews were thus providentially 
led to deposit a pledge for the truth of the Gospel which they could never recall, 
and in the heart of their inspired records had treasured up a picture of the Man 
of Sorrows of which it was too late to deny the likeness to Jesus of Nazareth. 

The translation has been made from the Vatican text (Valpy's edition) with 
occasional insertions of Alexandrine readings in the notes. As these have seldom 
been added, except where they seemed to elucidate or othermse improve upon the 
Vatican text, they would of course convey far too favoiu-able an opinion of that copy 
to any one who should form a judgment of it from a review of those passages alone. 
The comparative merits of the two copies have been the subject of much contro- 
versy, but the question is yet undecided. The general opinion appears to be in 
favour of the Vatican, while at the same time many obscure passages are rendered 
clear, and many omissions supplied by the Alexandrine text. 

Most of the references to the New Testament are taken from the list in Spear- 
man's Letters on the Septuagint, (pp. 348 — 352), a work containing some valuable 
remarks, but tinctured throughout with the opinions of Hutchinson, and stating, 
rather than answering, the question we have been considermg relative to the 
quotations from the Septuagint found in the New Testament. 

In the notes also, though very rarely, there appears the name of Thomson, the 
American translator. The •wiiter has himself never seen that work, but some 
alterations and improvements were made from it by a friend (Mr. Charles Pridham) 
who had the opportunity of comparing the tAvo, and to whom he is otherwise in- 
debted for the correction of many errors. Wliile thus acknowledging our obhga- 
tions to Thomson, we are of course not likely to speak slightingly of his work. If 
there are faults, they are probably those of a vigorous and independent mind, better 
fitted to engage in original attempts than to submit to the drudgery of translation. 

For the pm-pose of throwing some light on the Chronology of the Septuagint, 
the following Table has been copied, with some variations, from Home's valuable 
Introduction to the Study of Scripture, Vol. iii. p. 527, 7th ed.

GENESIS. 



CHAPTER I. Verses 1—19. 



1. IN the beginning God made the 
heaven and the earth. ^ But the earth 
was unsightly and unfurnished, and 
darkness was over the deep, and the 
Spirit of God moved over the water. 
^ And God said, Let there be Kght, and 
there was Kght. ^And God saw the 
light that it was good, and God divided 
t(?r. and be- between the light ^and the 
^InJ^He. darkness. ^ And God called 
braistn. the light Day, and the dark- 

ness he called Night, and there was 
evening and there was morning, the 
first day. 

^ And God said, Let there be a firma- 
ment in the midst of the water, and 
let it be a division between water and 
water, and it was so. ^ And God made 
the firmament and God divided be- 
tween the water which was under the 
firmament and the water which was 
above the firmament. ^And God called 
the firmament Heaven, and God saw 
that it was good, and there was even- 
ing and there was morning, the second 
day. 

^ And God said. Let the water which 
is imder the heaven be collected into 
+ Gr. meeting, quc ^placc, and let the dry 
land appear, and it was so. And 
the water which was under the hea- 
t Gr. their "^^^ "^3,s Collected into '^its 
meetings. placcs, and the dry land 
appeared. ^^ And God called the dry 
+ Gr. systems, land Earth, and the ^gather- 
ings of the waters he called Seas, and 



God saw that it was good. " And 
God said. Let the earth bring forth 
the herb of grass ^bearing + G-r. sowing:, 
seed according to its kind and accord- 
ing to its likeness and the fruit-tree 
bearing fruit, whose seed is in it, ac- 
cording to its kind ^ on the uiex. + di 
earth, and it was so. ^^And "/^""S")™ 
the earth brought forth the herb of 
grass bearing seed according to its kind 
and according to its Hkeness, and the 
fruit tree bearing fruit whose seed is in 
it, according to its kind on the earth, 
and God saw that it was good. '^And 
there was evening and there was morn- 
ing, the third day. 

'^And God said, Let there be lights 
in the firmament of the hea- + ^^ f^^ ^ ^it 
ven '^to give light upon the °^ shining, 
earth, to divide between day and night, 
and let them be for signs and for sea- 
sons and for days and for years. '^ And 
let them be for light in the firmament 
of the heaven, so as to shine upon the 
earth, and it was so. '^ And God made 
the two great lights, the greater light 
for regulating the day, and the lesser 
light for regulating the night, the 
stars also. ^^And God placed them 
in the firmament of the heaven, so as 
to sliine upon the earth, ^^and to regu- 
late day and night, and to divide 
between the light and the darkness. 
And God saw that it was good. 
'^And there was evening and there 
was morning, the fourth day.

Chap. ii. u. 11. 



^"And God said, Let the waters 
tiiY.ofUving bring forth reptiles ' having 
souls. life^ and winged creatures 

flying above the earth in the firma- 
ment of heaven, and it was so. ^^ And 
t Or, probably God made great ^whales, and 
OT marine iS: ^ every living reptile, which 
Tetice^uf ^or ^^'^^ watcrs brought forth 
not. according to their kinds, 

soin'of ^uvLg ^^^^ every creature that flies 
reptiles. with wings according to its 

kind, and God saw that they were 
good. ^^And God blessed them, say- 
ing. Increase and multiply and fill the 
waters in the seas, and let the crea- 
tures that fly be multiplied on the 
earth. ^^And there was evening and 
there was morning, the fifth day. 

^* And God said. Let the earth bring 
+ Gr. soul. forth the living ^ creature 
according to its kind, quadrupeds and 
reptiles and wild beasts of the earth 
according to their kind, and it was so. 
^^And God made the wild beasts of 
the earth according to their kind, and 
cattle according to their kind, and all 
the reptiles of the earth according to 
their kind, and God saw that they 
were good. 

^^ And God said. Let us make man 
according to our image and likeness, 
and let them have dominion over the 
fish of the sea, and over the flying 
creatures of heaven, and over the cattle 
and all the earth, and over all the rep- 
tiles that creep on the earth. ^^And 
God made man, according to the image 
tMat. 19. 4. of God ^he made him, male 
and female he made them. ^^And God 
blessed them, saying, Increase and multi- 
ply, and fill the earth and subdue it, and 
have dominion over the fish of the seas 
and flying creatures of heaven, and all 
the cattle and all the earth, and all the 
reptiles that creep on the earth. ^^ And 
God said. Behold I have given to you 
every seed-bearing herb sowing seed 
which is upon all the earth, and every 
tree which has in itself the fruit of seed 
that is sown, to you it shall be for food. 
^°And to all the wild beasts of the earth. 



and to all the flying creatures of hea- 
ven, and to every reptile creeping on 
the earth, which has in itself the 
^breath of hfe, even every +Gr. soui. 
green plant for food ; and it was so. 
^' And God saw all the things that he 
had made, and, behold, they were very 
good. And there was evening and there 
was morning, the sixth day. + or, order. 
2. And the heavens and see John 1.10. 
the earth were finished and the whole 
^Avorld of them. 

^ ^ And God finished on the sixth day 
his works which he made, + Heb. 4. 4. 
and he ceased on the seventh day from 
all his works which he made. ^And 
God blessed the seventh day ,1 or, made in 

- . -, , -^ the bcKinnmg. 

and sanctified it, because see Acts 1.1. 
in it he ceased from all his works which 
God ^ began to do. 

^ This is the book of the genera- 
tion of heaven and earth, when ^they 
were made, in the day in toi-, ittook 
which the Lord God made p'**"^- 
the heaven and the earth, ^ and every 
herb of the field before it was on the 
earth, and all the grass of the field be- 
fore it sprang up, for God had not rained 
on the earth, and there was not a man 
to cultivate it. ^ But there rose a 
fountain out of the earth, and watered 
the whole face of the earth. ^ And God 
formed the man of dust of the earth, 
and breathed upon his face +iCor. 15.45. 
the breath of life, ^ and the man became 
a living soul. 

^ And God planted a garden eastward 
in Edem, and placed there the man 
whom he had formed. ^And God 
made ta spring up also out of the earth 
every tree beautiful ^ to the + or. for sight, 
eye aiid good for food, and the tree of 
life in the midst of the garden, and the 
tree of learning ^ the know- + or, that 
ledge of good and evil. ^::^^^X. 
'" And a river proceeds out ^°"^- '• '9- 
of Edem to water the garden, thence it 
divides itself into four heads. " The 
name of the one, Phisom, this it is 
which encircles the whole land of Evi-

gold of that land is good, there also is 
carbuncle and emerald. '^ And the 
name of the second river is Geon, this 
it is which encircles the whole land of 
Ethiopia. ^'* And the third river is 
Tigris, this is that which flows forth 
over against the Assyrians. And the 
fom-th river is Euphi'ates. ''^ And the 
Lord God took the man whom he had 
formed, and placed him in the garden 
of Delight, to cultivate and keep it. 
'^ And the Lord God gave a charge to 
Adam, saying, Of every tree which is

was the name of it. ^*^And Adam

and to all the birds of the sky, and to 
all the wild beasts of the field, but for 
Adam there was not found a help hke 
to himself ^' And God brought a 
trance upon Adam, and he slept, and 
he took one of his ribs, and filled up 
the flesh instead thereof ^^ And God 

t Gr. buut. ^formed the rib which he took 
from Adam into a woman, and brought 
her to Adam. ^^And Adam said. This

'^^ And the two were naked, both Adam 
and his wife, and were not ashamed. 

3. Now the serpent was the most 
crafty of all the brutes on the earth, 
which the Lord God made, and the 
serpent said to the woman, Wlierefore 
has God said, Eat not of every tree of the 
garden ? ^ And the woman said to the 
serpent. We may eat of the fruit of the 
trees of the garden, ^ but of the fruit 
of the tree which is in the midst of the 
garden, God said. Ye shall not eat of it, 
neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die.

^ And the woman saw that the tree was 
good for food, and that it was pleasant 
to the eyes to look upon and beautiful 
to contemplate, and having taken of its 
fruit she ate, andshegave to her husband 
also with her, and they ate. ''And the 
eyes of both were opened and they per- 
ceived that they were naked, and they 
sewed fig leaves together and made 
themselves aprons to go round them. 
^ And they heard the voice of the Lord 
God walking in the garden in the after- 
noon ; and both Adam and his wife 
hid themselves from thc"|face of the 
Lord God in the midst of the trees 
of the garden. ^And the Lord God 
called Adam and said to him, Adam, 
where art thou ? ^'^ And he said to 
him, I heard ^thy voice as + or, the 

.1 n 1 i • ii 1 sound of thee 

thou walkedst m the garden walking, 
and I feared because I ^ was + g^- am. 
naked and I hid myself " And God 
said to him, Wlio told thee that thou 
^wast naked, unless thou hast ^ or. art. 
eaten of the tree concerning which 
I charged thee of it alone not to eat ? 
'^ And Adam said, the woman whom 
thou gavest to be with me — she gave 
me of the tree and I ate. ^^ And the 
Lord God said to the woman, Wliy 
hast thou done this? And the wo-

man said, The serpent deceived me 
and I ate. 

''* And the Lord God said to tlie ser- 
pent, Because thou hast done this thou 
art cursed above all cattle and all the 
brutes of the earth, on thy breast 
and belly thou shalt go and thou 
shalt eat earth all the days of thy 
life. '^ And I will put enmity be-

Because thou hast hearkened to the

concerning which I charged thee of it 
only not to eat — of that thou hast eaten, 
cursed is the ground in thy labom's, in 
pain shalt thou eat of it all the days of 
thy hfe. '^ Thorns and thistles shall it 
bring forth unto thee, and thou shalt 
eat the herb of the field. '^ In the 
sweat of thy face shalt thou eat thy 
bread until thou return to the earth out 
of which thou wast taken, for earth 
thou art and to earth thou shalt return. 
^° And Adam called the name of his 
+ Gr. zoe. -wifc ^ Life because she was 
the mother of all living. ^' And the 
Lord God made for Adam and his wife 
garments of skin and clothed them. 

^^ And ^ God said, Behold, Adam is 
+.4/6*. + the Lord, become as one of us, to 
know good and evil, and now lest at 
any time he stretch forth his hand, 
and take of the tree of life and cat, 
and so he shall live for ever — ^^ So 
the Lord God sent him forth out of 
the garden of Delight to cultivate the 
ground out of which he was taken. 
^* And he cast out Adam and caused 
him to dwell over against the garden 
of Delight and stationed the cherubs 



and the liery sword that turns about to 
keep the way of the tree of life. 

4. And Adam knew Eve his wife, 
and she conceived and brought forth 
Cain and said, I have gained a man 
through God. ^And she again bore 
his brother Abel. And Abel was a 
keeper of sheep, but Cain was a tiller 
of the ground. ^And it was so 
^ after some time that Cain + Gr. after 
brought of the fruits of the '^*^^- 
earth a sacrifice to the Lord. ■* And 
Abel ^also brought of the tor. heaiso. 
firstborn of his sheep and of his fat- 
lings, and God looked upon Abel and 
his gifts, '^but Cain and his sacrifices 
he regarded not, and Cain was ex- 
ceedingly sorrowful and his counte- 
nance fell. ^And the Lord God said to 
Cain, Wliy art thou become very sorrow- 
ful and why is thy coimtcnance fallen? 
^ Hast thou not sinned if thou hast 
brought it rightly, but not rightly di- 
vided it ? be still, unto thee shall be his 
submission, and thou shalt rule over him. 

^ And Cain said to Abel liis brother, 
Let us go out into the plain, and it 
came to pass that when they were in 
the plain Cain rose up against Abel his 
brother and slew him. '■'And the Lord 
God said to Cain, Wliere is Abel thy 
brother ? and he said, I know not, am 
I my brother's keeper ? *°And the Lord 
said, Wliat hast thou done ? the voice 
of thy brother's blood cries to me out 
of the groiuid. " And now thou art 
cursed from the earth which has opened 
her mouth to receive thy brother's blood 
from thy hand. ''•^ When thou tillest 
the earth , then it shall not continue to 
give its strength to thee, thou shalt be 
groaning and trembling on the earth. 
'^ And Cain said to the Lord God, My 
crime is too great for me to be foi'given. 
'^ If thou castest me out this day from 
the face of the earth * and I to, then shau 
shall be hidden from thy "'^' 
presence, and I shall be groaning and 
trembling upon the earth, then it will 
be that any one that finds me shall slay

Not so, any one that slays Cain shall 
+6r. pay. seven ^ sufFer seven-fold vengeance ; 

penalties. ^^^ ^i^^^ L^^.^J Q^^ g^^ ^ ^^^^-^ 

upon Cain that no one that found him 
might slay him. '^ So Cain went forth 
from the presence of God and dwelt in 
the land of Nod over against Edem. 

'^ And Cain knew his wife, and hav- 
ing conceived she bore Enoch ; and he 
+ Gr. was ^ built a city ; and he named 

his son, Enoch. '^ And to Enoch was 
born Gaidad ; and Gaidad begot Male-

earth, and the ark was borne upon the 
water. ^^ And the water prevailed ex-

out of the ark, were Sem, Cham, Ja-

naan. '^ These three are the sons of 
Noe, of these were men scattered over

a husbandman, and he planted a vine- 
yard. 2' And he drank of the vonc,

house. ^^And Cham the father of 
Chanaan saw the nakedness of his father,

without. ^^And Sem and Japheth 
having taken a garment, put it on both 
their backs and went backwards, and 
covered the nakedness of their father ; 
and their face was backward, and they 
saw not the nakedness of their father. 
^"^ And Noe recovered from the wine, 
and knew all that his yomiger son had 
done to him. ^'^ And he said. Cursed 
be the servant Chanaan, a slave shall 
he be to his brethren. ^^ And he said, 
Blessed be the Lord God of Sem, and

from the east, they found a plain in the 
land of Senaar, and they dwelt there.

shall be to heaven, and let us make to 
ourselves a name, before we are scattered

and now nothing shall fail from them 
of all that they may have undertaken 
to do. ^ Come, and having gone down 
let us there confound their tongue, that 
they may not understand each the voice 
of his neighbour. **And the Lord 
scattered them thence over the face of 
all the earth, and they left off building 
the city and the tower. ^ On this ac- 
count its name was called Confusion,

^^ And Tharrha took Abram his son,

they came as far as Charrhan, and he 
dwelt there. ^^ And all the days of 
Tharrha in the land of Charrhan were

the tribes of the earth be blessed. '' And 
Abram went as the Lord spoke to him, 
and Lot departed with him, and Abram 
was seventy-five years old, when he 
went out of Charrhan. ^ And Abram 
took Sara his wife, and Lot the son of 
his brother, and all their possessions,

Abram well on her account, and he

^And having turned back they came

plain of the kings. 

^^And Melchisedec king of Salem 
brought forth loaves and wine, and he 
was the priest of the most high God. 
^^ And he blessed Abram, and said,

bore him no children, and she had an 
Egyptian maid, whose name was Agar. 
^And Sara said to Abram, Behold, the 
Lord has restrained me from bearing, 
go therefore in unto my maid, that I 
may get children for myself through 
her. And Abram hearkened to the 
voice of Sara. ^So Sara the wife of 
Abram having taken Agar the Egyp-

dwelt ten years in the land of Chanaan, 
gave her to Abram her husband as a

Agar bore a son to Abram, and Abram 
called the name of Iris son which Agar 
bore to him, Ismael. '^And Abram 
was eighty-six years old, when Agar 
bore Ismael to Abram.

years old, and the Lord appeared to 
Abram and said to him, I am thy God, 
be well-pleasing before me, 'and be 
blameless. ^And I will estabUsh my 
covenant between me and thee, and I

thou shalt fully keep between me and 
you, and between thy seed after thee

will bless her, and give thee a son of 
her, and I wiU bless him,-^and he shall 
become nations, and kings of nations

upon his face, and laughed ; and spoke 
in his heart, saying. Shall there be a 
child to one who is a hundred years 
old, and shall Sarrha who is ninety 
years old, bear? '^And Abraam said 
to God, Let this Ismael live before thee.

speaking with him, and God went up 
from Abraam. 

'^^And Abraam took Ismael his son,

those bought -with money, and every 
male of the men in the house of 
Abraam, and he circumcised their

Abraam was ninety-nine years old,

the oak of Mambre, as he sat by 
the door of his tent at noon. ^And 
he Hfted up his eyes and beheld,

them from the door of his tent, and

vant. ''Let water now be brought,

^And I will bring bread, and ye shall 
eat, and after this ye shall depart on 
your journey, on account of which re- 
freskment ye have turned aside to your 
servant. And he said, So do, as thou 
hast said. ^And Abraam hasted to 
the tent to Sarrha, and said to her, 
Hasten, and knead three measures of 
fine flour, and make cakes. ^And 
Abraam ran to the kine, and took a

denied, saying, I did not laugh, for she

""And the men having risen up from 
thence looked towards Sodom and

ney. And they said, Nay, but we will 
lodge in the street. ^And he con- 
strained them, and they turned aside 
to him, and they entered into his 
house, and he made a feast for them, 
and baked unleavened cakes for them, 
and they did eat. ^But before they 
went to sleep, the men of the city, the 
Sodomites, compassed the house, both 
young and old, all the people together. 
^And they called out Lot, and they 
said to him, Where are the men that 
went in to thee this night ? bring 
them out to us that we may be with 
them. ''And Lot went out to them 
to the porch, and he shut the door after 
him, '^and said to them, By no means, 
brethren, do not act villanovisly. ^But 
I have two daughters, who have not 
known a man. I will bring them out 
to you, and do ye use them as it may 
please you, only do not injury to these 
men, to avoid which they came under 
the shelter of my ''^roof. +ii<. beams. 
^And they said to him, -Stand back 
there, thou camest into sojourn, Was 
it also to judge? Now then we Avould 
harm thee more than them. And they 
pressed hard on the man, even Lot, 
and they drew nigh to break the door. 
'°And the men stretched forth their 
hands and drew Lot in to them into 
the house, and shut the door of the 
house. ^^And they smote the men that 
were at the door of the house with 
blindness, both small and great, and 
they were wearied with seeking the 
door. '^And the men said to Lot, 
Hast thou here sons-in-law, or sons or 
daughters, or if thou hast any other 
friend in the city, bring them out of

this place. '^For we are going to 
destroy this place ; for their cry has 
been raised up before the Lord, and 
the Lord has sent us to destroy 
iavT^v. scii. ^it. '"^And Lot went out, 
"°'^"'' and spoke to his sons-in-law 

who had married his daughters, and 
said, Rise up, and depart out of this 
place, for the Lord is about to destroy 
the city, but he seemed to be speaking 
absurdly before his sons-in-law. '^But 
when it was morning, the angels 
hastened Lot, saying. Arise and take 
thy wife, and thy two daughters whom 
thou hast, and go forth ; lest thou also be 
destroyed with the iniquities of the city. 
^^ And they were troubled, and the angels 
laid hold on his hand, and the hand of 
his wife, and the hands of his two 
daughters, in that the Lord spared him. 
^^And it came to pass when they 
brought them out, that they said, Save 
thine own life by all means ; look not 
round to that which is behind, nor stay 
in all the country round about, escape 
to the mountain, lest perhaps thou be 
overtaken together with them. '^ And 
Lot said to them, I pray, Lord, '^ since 
thy servant has found mercy before 
thee, and thou hast magnified thy 
righteousness, in what thou doest to- 
wards me that my soul may live, — but 
I shall not be able to escape to the 
mountain, lest perhaps the calamity 
overtake me and I die. ^*' Behold this 
city is near for me to escape thither, 
which is a small one, and there shall 1 
be preserved, is it not little? and my 
soul shall live because of thee. ^' And 
he said to him, behold, I have had 
+ o. thy respect to '^thee, also about 

countenance. ^J^jg t\\m», that I should not 

overthrow the city about which thou 
hast spoken. ^'-^ Hasten therefore to 
escape thither, for 1 shall not be able to 
do anything until thou art come thither ; 
therefore he called the name of that city 
Segor. ^^The sim was risen upon the 
earth, when Lot entered into Segor. 
"^^ And the Lord rained on Sodom and 
Gomorrha brimstone and fire from the 



Lord out of heaven. ^^And he over- 
threw these cities, and all the country 
round about, and all that dwelt in the 
cities, and the plants springing out of 
the ground. •^''Ajid his wife looked 
back, and she became a pillar of salt. 
^^And Abraam rose up early to go to 
the place, where he had stood before 
the Lord. ^**And he looked towards 
Sodom and Gomorrha, and towards the 
surrounding country, and saw, and be- 
hold a flame went up from the earth, 
as the smoke of a furnace. ^^And it 
came to pass that when God destroyed 
all the cities of the region roimd about, 
God remembered Abraam, and sent 
Lot out of the midst of the overthrow, 
when the Lord overthrew those cities 
in which Lot dwelt. 

^**And Lot went up out of Segor, 
and dwelt in the mountain, he and his 
two daughters with him, for he feared 
to dwell in Segor, and he dwelt in a 
cave, he and his two daughters with 
him. ^'And the elder said to the 
younger. Our father is old, and there 
is no one on the earth who shall come 
in to us, as it is fit in all the earth. 
^^Come and let us make our father 
drink wine, and let us sleep with him, 
and let us raise up seed from our father. 
^^ So they made their father drink wine 
in that night, and the elder went in 
and lay with her lather that night, and 
he knew not when he slept and when 
he rose up. ^''And it came to pass 
on the morrow, that the elder said to 
the younger, Behold, I slept yester- 
night with our father, let us make him 
drink wine in this night also, and do 
thou go in and sleep with him, and let 
us raise up seed of om* father. ^*So 
they made their father drink wine in 
that night also, and the younger went 
in and slept with her father, and he 
knew not when he slept, nor when he 
arose. ^^And the two daughters of 
Lot conceived by their father. ^^ And 
the elder bore a son, and called his 
name Moab, saying, He is of my father. 
This is the father of the Moabites to

this present day. ^^And tlie younger 
also bore a son, and called liis name 
Amman, saying, the son of my family. 
This is the father of the Ammanites to 
this present day. 

20. And Abraam removed thence to 
the southern country, and dwelt be- 
tween Cades and Sur, and sojourned 
in Gerara. ^And Abraam said con- 
cerning Sarrha liis wife, She is my 
sister, for he feared to say, She is my 
wife, lest at any time the men of the 
city should kill liim for her sake. So 
Abimelcch king of Gerara sent and 
took Sarrha. ^And God came to Abi- 
melech by night in sleep, and said, 
Behold, thou diest for the woman, 
whom thou hast taken, whereas she has 
lived with a husband. ''But Abime- 
lech had not touched her, and he said. 
Lord, wilt thou destroy an ignorantly 
sinnirig and just nation? ^ Said he 
not to me, She is my sister, and said 
she not to me. He is my brother? with 
a pure heart and in the righteousness 
of my hands have I done this. ^ And 
God said to him in slee|). Yea, I knew 
that thou didst this Avith a pure heart, 
and I spared thee, so that thou shovddest 
not sin against me, therefore I suffered 
thee not to touch her. '^But now re- 
tui'n the man his wife ; for he is a 
prophet, and shall pray for thee, and 
thou shalt Hve, but if thou restore her 
not, know that thou shalt die and all 
thine. ^And Abimelech rose early in 
the morning, and called all liis servants, 
and he spoke all these words in their 
ears, and all the men feared exceed- 
ingly. ^ And Abimelech called Abraam 
and said to liim, Wliat is tliis that thou 
hast done to us? Have we sinned 
against thee, that thou hast brought 
upon me and upon my kingdom a great 
sin ? Thou hast done to me a deed, 
which no one ought to do. ^"^ And Abi- 
melech said to Abraam, A\'liat hast thou 
seen in me that thou hast done this ? 
'^And Abraam said. Why I said. Surely 
there is not the worship of God in this 



place, and they will slay me because of 
my wife. '^For truly she is my sister 
by my father, but not by my mother, 
and she became my wife. '^And it 
came to pass when God brought me 
forth out of the house of my father, 
that I said to her. This righteousness 
thou shalt perform to me, in every place 
into wliich we may enter, say of me. 
He is my brother. ^^ And Abimelech 

took a thousand ^ pieces of +Gr.didrachms. 

silver, and sheep, and calves, and ser- 
vants, and maid-servants, and gave 
them to Abraam, and he returned him 
Sarrha his wife. '^And Abimelech 
said to Abraam, Behold, my land is 
before thee, dwell wheresoever it may 
please thee. '^And to Sarrha he said 
Behold, I have given thy brother a 
thousand pieces of silver, those shall 
be to thee for the price of thy counte- 
nance, and to all the women with thee, 
and speak the truth in all things. ^^And 
Abraam prayed to God, and God healed 
Abimelech, and his wife, and his women 
servants, and they bore children. '^ Be- 
cause the Lord had fast closed from 
without every womb in the house of 
Abimelech, because of Sarrha Abraam's 
wife. 

2L And the Lord visited Sarrha, as 
he said, and the Lord did to Sarrha, as 
he spoke. '""And she conceived and bore 
to Abraam a son in old age, at the set 
time according as the Lord spoke to 
him. ^ And Abraam called the name 
of his son that was born to him, whom 
Sarrha bore to him, Isaac. ''And 
Abraam circumcised Isaac on the eighth 
day, as God commanded liim. ^And 
Abraam was a hundred years old when 
Isaac his son was born to him. ^ And 
Sarrha said, The Lord has made 
laughter for me, for whoever shall hear 
shall rejoice with me. ^ And she said, 
Wlio shall say to Abraam that Sarrha 
suckles a child, for I have born a child 
in my old age? ^And the child grew 
and was weaned, and Abraam made a 
great feast the day that his son Isaac

Abraam, ^Cast out this bondwoman and

I will make the son of this bondwoman

'''And Abraam rose up in the morning 
and took loaves and a skin of water,

child on her shovxlder, and sent her 
away, and she having departed wan-

the water failed out of the skin, and 
she cast the child under a fir tree. 
'^And she departed and sat down op- 
posite him at a distance, as it were a 
bow-shot, for she said, Surely I cannot 
see the death of my child, and she sat 
opposite him, and the child cried aloud 
and wept. '^ And God heard the voice 
of the child from the place where he 
was, and an angel of God called Agar 
out of heaven, and said to her. What 
is it, Agar? fear not, for God has heard 
the voice of the child from the place 
where he is. '**Rise up, and take the 
child, and hold him in thine hand,

'^And God opened her eyes, and she

skin with water, and gave the child 
drink. ^"And God was with the child,

he dwelt in the wilderness, and his 
mother took him a wife out of Pharan

by any means withhold his sepulchre 
from thee, so that thou shouldest not 
biu-y thy dead there. ^And Abraam 
rose up and did obeisance to the people 
of the land, to the sons of Chet. ^And 
Abraam spoke to them, saying. If ye 
have it in your mind that I should 
bury my dead out of my sight, hearken 
to me, and speak for me to Ephron 
the son of Saar. ^And let him give 
me the double cave which he has, 
which is in a part of his field, let him 
give it me for the money it is worth 
for possession of a burying-place among 
you. '° Now Ephron was sitting in the 
midst of the children of Chet, and 
Ephron the Chettite answered Abraam

me, my lord, and hear me, I give to 
thee the field and the cave which is in

Abraam did obeisance before the peo- 
ple of the land. '^And he spoke in 
the ears of Ephron before the people 
of the land. Since thou art on my side, 
hear me, take the money of the land 
from me, and I will bury my dead there. 
'■^But Ephron answered Abraam, say- 
ing, ^^Nay, my lord, I have heard in- 
deed, the land is worth four hundred 
silver di drachms, but what can this be 
between me and thee? nay, do thou 
bury thy dead. '^ And Abraam heark- 
ened to Ephron, and Abraam rendered 
to Ephron the money, which he men- 
tioned in the ears of the sons of Chet, 
four hundred didrachms of silver ap- 
proved with merchants. '^And the 
field of Ephron, which was in Double 
Cave, which is opposite Mambre, the 
field and the cave, which was in it, 
and every tree which was in the field,

about, were made sure '*vmto Abraam 



for a possession, before the sons of Chet, 
and all that entered into the city. 
'^ After this Abraam buried Sarrha his 
wife in the Double Cave of the field,

Chebron in the land of Chanaan. ^° So 
the field and the cave which was in it 
were made sure to Abraam for posses- 
sion of a burying place, by the sons of 
Chet. 24. And Abraam was old, ad- 
vanced in days, and the Lord blessed 
Abraam in all things. 

^ And Abraam said to his servant the 
elder of his house, who had mle over 
all his possessions, Put thy hand under 
my thigh, ^and I will adjm'e thee by 
the Lord the God of heaven, and the 
God of the earth, that thou take not a 
wife for my son Isaac from the 
daughters of the Chananites, with 
whom I dwell, in the midst of them. 
''But thou shalt go instead to my 
country, where I was born, and to my 
tribe, and thou shalt take from thence 
a wife for my son Isaac. ^And the

earth, who took me out of my father's 
house, and out of the land whence I 
sprang, who spoke to me, and who 
swore to me, saying, I will give this 
land to thee and to thy seed, he shall 
send his angel before thee, and thou 
shalt take a wife to my son from thence. 
** And if the woman should not be 
wilhng to come with thee into this 
land, thou shalt be clear from my oath,

land, besides the former famine, which 
was in the time of Abraam, and Isaac 
went to Abimelech the king of the 
PhyHstines to Gerara. ^ And the Lord 
appeared to him and said. Go not down

father Abraam. '' And I will multiply 
thy seed as the stars of heaven, and I 
will give to thy seed all this land, and 
all the nations of the earth shall be

thy father hearkened to my voice, and 
kept my injunctions and my command-

statutes. ** And Isaac dwelt in Gerara. 
' And the men of the place questioned 



him concerning Rebecca his wife, and 
he said. She is my sister, for he feared 
to say. She is my wife, lest at any time

because of Rebecca, because she was

to him. Is she then thy wife ? why hast 
thou said, She is my sister? And 
Isaac said to him I did so, for I said, 
lest at any time I die on her account. 
'°And Abimelech said to him, \\^iy 
hast thou done this to us? one of my 
kindred Vithin a little had ^i-d. Had almost, 
lain with thy w4fe, and thou wouldst 
have brought a sin of ignorance upon

people, saying, Every man that touches 
this man and his wife shall be Hable 
to death. '^And Isaac sowed in that 
land, and he found in that year barley 
an hundred-fold, and the Lord blessed 
him. ^^ And the man was exalted, and 
advancing he increased, till he became 
very great. ^* And he had cattle of 
sheep, and cattle of oxen, and many 
tilled lands, and the PhyHstines envied 
him. ''^And all the wells which the 
servants of his father had dug in the 
time of his father, the Phylistines 
stopped thcna, and filled them with 
earth. ^^ And Abimelech said to Isaac, 
Depart from us, for thou art become 
much mightier than we. '^And Isaac 
departed thence, and rested in the 
valley of Gerara, and dwelt there. 

'•^And Isaac dug again the wells of 
water, which the servants of his lather 
Abraam had dug, and the PhyHstines 
had stopped them, after the death of 
his father Abraam, and he gave them 
names, according to the names by which 
his father named them. '^And the

well and they strove also for that, and 
he named the name of it Enmity.

another well, and they did not strive 
about that, and he named the name of 
it Eoom, saying. Because now the Lord 
has made room for us, and has increased 
us upon the earth. 

^^ And he went up thence to the well 
of the oath. ^* And the Lord appeared 
to him in that night, and said, I am 
the God of Abraam thy father, fear 
not, for I am with thee, and I will 
bless thee, and multiply thy seed for 
the sake of Abraam thy father. ^'^And 
he built there an altar, and called on 
the name of the Lord, and there he 
pitched his tent, and there the servants 
of Isaac dug a well in the valley of

"*^^' to them, Wlierefore have ye 

come to me ? whereas ye hated me, and 
sent me away from you. ^^ And they 
said,We have surely seen that the Lord 
was with thee, and we said. Let there 
be an oath between us and thee, and 
we will make a covenant with thee, 
^^that thou shalt do no wrong by us, 
as we have not abhorred thee, and ac- 
cording as we have treated thee well, 
and have sent thee forth peaceably; 
and now thou art blessed of the Lord. 
^"And he made a feast for them, 
and they ate and drank. ^' And they 
arose in the morning, and swore each 
to his neighbour, and Isaac sent them 
forth, and they departed from him in 
safety. ^^ And it came to pass in that 
day, that the servants of Isaac came 
and told him of the well which they 
had dug, and they said, We have not 
found water. ^^ And he called it 
Oath, therefore he called the name of 



that city the Well of Oath, until this 
day. 

^* And Esau was forty years old, and 
he took to wife Judith the daughter 
of Beoch the Chettite, and Basemath, 
daughter of Helen the ^Aiex. Hivite. 
^ Chettite. ^''And they were provoking 
to Isaac and Rebecca. 

27. And it came to pass after Isaac 
was old, that his eyes were dimmed so 
that he could not see, and he called 
Esau, his elder son, and said to him, 
My son; and he said, Behold I am here. 
^And he said. Behold, I am grown old, 
and know not the day of my death. 
^ Now then take thy weapons, both thy 
quiver and thy bow, and go into the 
plain, and get me venison, "^and make 
me meats, as I Hke them, and bring 
them to me that I may eat, that my 
soul may bless thee, before 1 die. ^And 
Eebecca heard Isaac speaking to Esau 
his son ; and Esau went to the plain to 
procure venison for his father. ^And 
Rebecca said to Jacob her younger son, 
Behold I heard thy father speaking to 
Esau thy brother, saying, ^ Bring me 
venison, and prepare me meats, that I 
may eat and bless thee before the Lord 
before I die. *Now then, my son, 
hearken unto me, as I command thee. 
^And go to the cattle and take for me 
thence two kids, tender and good, and 
I will make them meats for thy father, 
as he likes. ^"^And thou shalt bring 
them in to thy father, and he shall eat, 
that thy father may bless thee before 
he dies. ^* And Jacob said to his mother 
Rebecca, Esau my brother is a hairy 
man, and I a smooth man. '^Peradven- 
ture my father may feel me, and I shall 
be before him as one iU-intentioned, 
and I shall bring upon me a curse and 
not a blessing. '^ And his mother said 
to him. On me be thy curse. Son, only 
hearken to my voice, and go and bring 
them me. ^'* So he went and took and 
brought them to his mother, and his 
mother made meats, as his father liked 
them.

^^And Jacob drew nigh to his father 
Isaac, and he felt him, and said. The

him not, for his hands were as the

^^ And he said. Bring hither, and I will 
eat of thy venison. Son, that my soul 
may bless thee ; and he brought it near

his father said to him. Draw nigh to 
me, and kiss me, son. ^^ And he drew 
nigh and kissed him, and smelled the

+//«*. Luz of saying, If the Lord God 
*^^^' will be with me, and guard 

me tliroughout on this journey, on 
which I am going, and give me bread 
to eat, and raiment to put on, ^'and 
bring me back in safety to the house of

lifted up his n -I 1 

feet, went, &c. ban the son of Bathuel the 
Syrian, and the brother of Rebecca, 
mother of Jacob and Esau. ^And he 
looks, and behold ! a well in the plain, 
and there were there three flocks of 
sheep resting at it, for out of that well 
they watered the flocks, but there was 
a, great stone at the mouth of the well. 
^And there were all the flocks gathered, 
and they used to roll away the stone 
from the mouth of the well, and water 
the flocks, and set the stone again in its 
place on the mouth of the well. ^ And 
Jacob said to them, Brethren, whence 
are ye ? and they said. We are of 
Charrhan. '^And he said to them, 
Know ye Laban the son of Nachor? 
and they said. We do know him. ®And 
he said to them. Is he well? And they 
said, He is well. And behold Rachel 
his daughter came with the sheep. 
^ And Jacob said. It is yet high day, it 
is not yet time that the flocks be 
gathered together, having watered the 
flocks, depart and feed them. ^And 
they said. We shall not be able, until 
all the shepherds be gathered together, 
and they shall roll away the stone from 
the mouth of the well, then we will 
water the flocks. ^Wliile he was yet 
speaking to them. Behold, Rachel the 
daughter of Laban came with her 
father's sheep, for she fed the sheep of 
her father. '"^And it came to pass when 
Jacob saw Rachel the daughter of

Laban his mother's brother, and the 
sheep of Laban his mother's brother, 
that Jacob came and rolled away the 
stone from the mouth of the well, and 
watered the sheep of Laban his mother's 
brother. ''And Jacob kissed Rachel, 
and cried with a loud voice and wept, 
''■^And he told Rachel that he was the 
near relative of her father, and the son 
of Rebecca ; and she ran and reported 
to her father according to these words. 
'^And it came to pass when Laban 
heard the name of Jacob his sister's 
son, he ran to meet him, and embraced 
and kissed him, and brought him into 
his house, and he told Laban all these 
sayings. ''*And Laban said t cr. month 
to him. Thou art of my "^ '^^y*- 
bones and of my flesh, and he was 
with him a ^ full month. 

'^And Laban said to Jacob, Surely 
thou shalt not serve me for nothing, 
because thou art my brother; tell me 
what thy reward is to be. '^Now 
Laban had two daughtei's, the name of 
the elder was Lea, and the name of the 
younger, Rachel. '^And the eyes of 
Lea were weak. But Rachel was 
beautiful in appearance, and exceed- 
ingly fair in countenance. '**And 
Jacob loved Rachel, and said, I will 
serve thee seven years for thy younger 
daughter Rachel. '^And Laban said 
to him. It is better that I should give 
her to thee, than that I should give her 
to another man, dwell with me. "^"And 
Jacob served for Rachel seven years, 
and they were before him as a few days, 
by reason of his loving her. ^'And 
Jacob said to Laban, Give me my wife, 
for my days are fulfilled, that I may 
go in to her. ^^And Laban gathered 
together all the men of the place, and 
made a marriage-feast. -^^iVnd it was 
even, and he took his daughter Lea, 
and brought her in to Jacob, and 
Jacob went in to her. '■^■*And Laban 
gave to his daughter Lea, Zclpha his 
handmaid, as a handmaid for her. 
^•'And it was morning, and behold it 
was Lea, and Jacob said to Laban,

What is tliis that thou hast done unto 
me? did 1 not serve thee for Rachel? 
and wherefore hast thou deceived me? 
^^And Laban answered, It is not done 
thus in our country, to give the younger 
before the elder. ^^ Fulfil then her 
sevens, and 1 will give to thee her also 
in return for thy labour, which thou 
labourest with me, yet seven other 
years. ^^And Jacob did so, and ful- 
filled her sevens, and Laban gave him 
his daughter Rachel to wife. ^^And 
Laban gave to liis daughter his hand- 
maid Balla, for a handmaid to her. 
^'^And he went in to Rachel, and he 
loved Rachel more than Lea, and he 
served him seven other years. 

^' And when the Lord God saw that 
Lea was hated, he opened her womb, 
but Rachel was barren. ^^And Lea 
conceived and bore a son to Jacob, 
and she called his name Ruben ; saying. 
Because the Lord has looked on my 
humihation, and has given me a son, 
now then my husband will love me. 
^^ And she conceived again, and bore a 
second son to Jacob, and she said, 
Because the Lord has heard that I am 
hated, he has given to me this one also, 
and she called his name Simeon. ^'^ And 
she conceived yet again, and bore a 
son, and said. In the present time my 
husband will be with me, for I have 
born him three sons, therefore she 
called his name Levi. ^^And having 
conceived yet again she bore a son, 
and said. Now yet again this time will 
I give thanks to the Lord, therefore 
she called his name Juda, and ceased 
bearing. 

30. And Rachel having perceived 
that she bore Jacob no children, 
was jealous of her sister, and said to 
Jacob, Give me children, and if not I 
shall die. ^ And Jacob was angry with 
Rachel, and said to her. Am I in 
the place of God, who has deprived 
thee of the fruit of the womb ? ^And 
Rachel said to Jacob, Behold my 
handmaid Balla, go in to her, and 



she shall bear upon my knees, and 1 
also shall have children by her. ''And 
she gave him Balla her maid, for a 
wife to him, and Jacob went in to 
her, ''and Balla Rachel's maid con- 
ceived, and bore Jacob a son. ^And 
Rachel said, God has given judgment 
for me, and hearkened to my voice, 
and has given me a son, therefore she 
called his name Dan. ^And Balla 
Rachel's maid conceived yet again, 
and bore a second son to Jacob. *And 
Rachel said, God has helped me, and I 
contended with my sister and prevailed, 
and she called his name Nephthalim. 
^And Lea saw that she ceased from 
bearing, and she took Zelpha her maid, 
and gave her to Jacob for a wife, and 
he went in to her. ^"And Zelpha 
the maid of Lea conceived, and bore 
Jacob a son. "And Lea said, It is 
happily : and she called his name Gad. 
'^And Zelpha the maid of Lea con- 
ceived yet again, and bore Jacob a 
second son. '^And Lea said, I am 
blessed, for the women will pronounce 
me blessed, and she called his name 
Aser. '■* And Ruben went in the day 
of barley -harvest, and found apples of 
mandrakes in the field, and brought 
them to his mother Lea, and Rachel 
said to Lea her sister, Give me of thy 
son's mandrakes. ^^And Lea said. Is 
it not enough for thee that thou hast 
taken my husband, wilt thou also take 
my son's mandrakes? And Rachel 
said. Not so : let him lie with thee to- 
night for thy son's mandrakes. ^^And 
Jacob came in out of the field at even, 
and Lea went forth to meet him, and 
said, thou shalt come in to me tliis 
day, for I have hired thee for my son's 
mandrakes; and he lay with her that 
night. '^And God hearkened to Lea, 
and she conceived, and bore Jacob a 
fifth son. '^And Lea said, God has 
given me my reward, because I gave 
my maid to my husband, and she called

the sons of Laban, saying, Jacob has 
taken all that was our father's, and of 
our father's property has he gotten all 
this glory. ^And Jacob saw the 
countenance of Laban, and behold it

them, I see the face of your father, that 
it is not toward me as before, but the 
God of my father was with me. ^And 
ye too know that with all my might I 
have served your father. ^But your 
father deceived me, and changed my 
wages for the ten lambs, yet God gave 
him not pmver to hurt me. ^If he 
should say thus. The speckled shall be 
thy reward, then all the cattle would bear 
speckled, and if he should say, The 
white shall be thy reward, then would all 
the cattle bear white. ^So God has 
taken away all the cattle of your father, 
and given them to me. '° And it came 
to pass when the cattle conceived and 
were with young, that I beheld with 
mine eyes in sleep, and behold the he- 
goats and the rams leaping on the sheep 
and the she-goats, speckled and varie- 
gated and spotted with ash-coloured 
spots. " And the angel of God said to

I said, Wliat is it? ^^And he said. 
Look up with thine eyes, and behold 
the he-goats and the rams leaping on 
the sheep and the she-goats, speckled 
and variegated and spotted with ash- 
coloured spots, for I have seen all 
things that Laban does to thee. '^ I

place of God, where thou anointedst a

nativity, and I will be with thee. '''And 
Rachel and Lea answered and said to 
him, Have we yet a part or inheritance 



in the house of our father? '''Are we 
not considered strangers by him? for 
he has sold us, and quite devoured our 
money. "'All the wealth and the 
glory which God has taken from our

has said to thee. '^And Jacob arose 
and took his wives and his children 
up on the camels; '^and he took away 
all his possessions and all his store, 
which he had gotten in Mesopotamia,

him that he ran away. ^' And he de- 
parted himself and all that belonged to 
him, and passed over the river, and 
went into the mountain Galaad. ^^ But 
it was told Laban the Syrian on the 
third day, that Jacob was fled. ^^And

Syrian in sleep by night, and said to 
him, Take heed to thyself that thou 
speak not at any time to Jacob evil 
things. ^'^And Laban overtook Jacob, 
and Jacob pitched his tent in the 
moimtain, and Laban stationed his 
brothers in the mount Galaad. ^^ And 
Laban said to Jacob, what hast thou

my daughters as captives taken with 
the sword? ^^Wliereas if thou hadst 
told me, I would have sent thee away

wrought foolishly. ^^And now my

answered and said to Laban, Because 
I was afraid; for I said, Lest at any

soever thou shalt find thy gods, he shall 
not live in the presence of our brethren ;

nothing with him, but Jacob knew not 
that his wife Rachel had stolen them. 
'^And Laban went in and searched in 
the house of Lea, and found them not,

went also into the house of Rachel.

them among the camels' packs, and sat

angry, and strove with Laban ; and

^^and that thou hast searched all the 
furniture of my house ? what hast thou 
found of all the furniture of thine

him to Esau liis brother to the land of 
Seir to the country of Edom. "^And 
he charged them saying, Thus shall ye 
say to my lord Esau, Thus saith thy 
servant Jacob, I have sojourned with 
Laban and tarried imtil now. ^And 
there were born to me oxen, and asses 
and sheep, and men-servants and 
women-servants; and I sent to tell my 
lord Esau, that thy servant might find 
grace in thy sight. ^ And the messen- 
gers returned to Jacob, saying. We 
came to thy brother Esau, and lo ! he 
comes to meet thee, and four hmidred 
men with him. ^And Jacob was greatly 
terrified, and was perplexed, and he 
divided the people that was with him, 
and the cows, and the camels, and the 
sheep, into two camps. ^And Jacob 
said. If Esau should come to one camp, 
and smite it, the other camp shall be 
in safety. ^And Jacob said, God of 
my father Abraam, and God of my 
father Isaac, Lord, thou art he that 
said to me, Depart quickly to the 
land of thy birth, and I will do thee 
good. ^°Let there be to me a suffi- 
ciency of all the justice and all the 
truth wliich thou hast wrought with 
thy servant, for with this my staff I 
passed over tliis Jordan, and now I 
am become two camps. ^* Deliver me 
from the hand of my brother, from the 
hand of Esau, for I am afraid of him, 



lest haply he should come and smite 
me, and the mother upon the children. 
'-But thou saidst, I will do thee good, 
and will make thy seed as the sand of 
the sea, which shall not be numbered 
for multitude. '^And he slept there 
that night, and took of the gifts which 
he carried ivith him and sent out to 
Esau his brother, '* two hundred she- 
goats, twenty he-goats, two himdred 
sheep, twenty rams, '^ milch camels, 
and their foals, thirty, forty kine, ten 
bulls, twenty asses and ten colts. '''And 
he gave them to his servants each drove 
apart, and he said to his servants, Go 
on before me, and put a space between 
drove and di-ove. '^And he charged 
the first, saying, If Esau my brother 
meet thee, and he ask thee, saying, 
AVliose art thou? and whither wouldst 
thou go, and whose are these posses- 
sions advancing before thee? '**Thou 
shalt say, thy servant Jacob's, he hath 
sent gifts to my lord Esau, and lo ! he 
is behind us. '^And he charged the 
first and the second and the third, and 
all that went before him after these 
flocks, saying, Thus shall ye speak to 
Esau when ye find him, ^°and ye 
shall say, behold thy servant Jacob 
comes after us. For he said, I will pro- 
pitiate his countenance vnth the gifts 
going before his presence, and after- 
wards I will behold liis face, for perad- 
venture he will accept '^m-e. +<?>•. my face. 
^' So the presents went on before him, 
but he himself lodged that night in the 
camp. ^^ And having risen up in that 
night, he took his two wives and his 
two servant-maids, and his eleven 
children, and crossed over the ford of 
Jaboch. "^And he took them, and 
passed over the torrent, and brought 
over all his possessions. 

^"^And Jacob was left alone, and a 
man wrestled vsdth him till the morn- 
ing. '^■' And he saw that he prevailed 
not against him, and he touched the 
broad part of his thigh, and the broad

his wresthng with him. ^'^And he

dawned, but he said, I will not let thee 
go, except thou bless me. ^'^And he 
said to him, ^^^"lat is thy name? and 
he answered, Jacob. ^**And he said 
to him, Thy name shall no longer be 
called Jacob, but Israel shall be thy 
name, for thou hast prevailed with God 
and shalt be mighty with men. ^^And 
Jacob asked and said. Tell me thy 
name, and he said,Wlierefore dost thou 
ask after my name ? and he blessed him 
there. ^''And Jacob called the name

he, I have seen God face to face, and

rose upon him, when he passed the 
Face of God, and he halted upon his 
thigh. ^^ Therefore the cliildren of 
Israel will by no means eat of the 
sinew which was benumbed, which is 
on the broad part of the thigh, until

speak to him. '' And the sons of Jacob 
came from the plain, and when they 
heard, the men were deeply pained, 
and it was very grievous to them, be- 
cause the man wrought folly in Israel, 
having lain with the daughter of Jacob,

saying, Sychem my son has chosen in

and take our daughters for your sons.

'^And the sons of Jacob answered 
to Sychem and Emmor his father 
craftily, and spoke to them, because 
they had defiled Dina their sister.

to a man who is uncircumcised, for it 
is a reproach to us. ''^ Only on these 
terms will we conform to you, and 
dwell among you, if ye also will be as 
we are, in that every male of you be 
circumcised. '^And we will give our 
daughters to you, and we will take of 
your daughters for wives to us, and we 
will dwell with you, and we will be as 
one race. '^ But if ye will not hearken 
to us to be circiuncised, we will take 
our daughter and depart. ^^And the 
words pleased Emmor, and Sychem 
the son of Emmor. '^ And the

attached to Jacob's daughter, and he 
was the most honourable of all in his

peaceable, let them dwell with us upon

behold the land is extensive before 
them; we will take their daughters to

served me throughout in the journey,

Jacob the strange gods, which were in 
their hands, and the ear-rings which 
were in their cars, and Jacob hid them 
under the turpentine tree which is in

to this day. ^ So Israel departed from 
Secima, and the fear of God was upon 
the cities round about them, and they

Israel. ^And Jacob came to Luza,

an altar, and called the name of the

brought Joseph down into Egypt. 
^^ And Ruben returned to the pit, and

his garments. ^^And he retiu-ned to 
his brethren and said. The boy is not, 
and I wliither am I yet to go? ^'And 
having taken the coat of Joseph, they 
slew a kid of the goats, and stained the 
coat with the blood. ^^ And they sent the 
coat of many colours, and they brought 
it to their father and said, This have 
we found, know if it be thy sons' coat 
or no. ^^And he recognised it and 
said. It is my son's coat, an evil wild 
beast has devoured him, a wild beast

would not be comforted, saying, I will

out, and let her be burnt. '^^And as

back his hand, then immediately came

after that he was set over his house, 
and over all that he had, that the Lord 
blessed the house of the Egyptian for 
Joseph's sake, and the blessing of the 
Lord was on all his possessions in the 
house, and in his field. "And he com- 
mitted all that he had into the hands

was handsome in form and exceedingly 
beautiful in countenance. ^And it

when he heard that I Hfted up my voice

king of Egypt. ^And Pharao was 
wroth with his two eunuchs, with his 
chief cupbearer, and with liis chief 
baker. ^ And he put them in ward, 
into the prison, into the place where- 
into Joseph had been led. ''And the 
chief keeper of the prison committed 
them to Joseph, and he stood by them, 
and they were some days in the prison. 

t Gr. saw. -5 And they both ^had a 
dream in one night, and the vision of 
the dream of the chief cupbearer and 
chief baker, who belonged to the king 
of Egypt, who were in the prison, was 
this. ^Joseph went in to them in 
the morning, and saw them, and they 
had been troubled. ''And he asked 
the eunuchs of Pharao who were with 
him in the prison with liis master, say- 
ing, Wliy is it that your countenances 
are sad to-day? ^And they said to 
him. We have seen a dream, and there 
is no interpreter of it. And Joseph 
said to them, Is not the intei"pretation 
of them throiigh God? tell them then 
to me. ^ And the chief cupbearer re- 
lated his dream to Joseph, and said, 

t Gr. sleep. In my ^ dream a vine was 
before me. '"And in the vine loere 
three stems, and it budding shot forth 
blossoms, the clusters of grapes were 
ripe. "And the cup of Pharao was in 
my hand, and I took the bunch of 
grapes, and squeezed it into the cup, 
and gave the cup into Pharao's hand. 
^^And Joseph said to him. This is the 
interpretation of it. The three stems 
are three days. '^Yet three days and 
Pharao shall remember thy office, and 
he shall restore thee to thy place of 
chief cupbearer, and thou shalt give 
the cup of Pharao into his hand, ac- 
cording to thy former high place, as 
thou wast wont to be cupbearer. ''*But 
remember me of thyself, when it shall 
be well with thee, and thou shalt deal 
mercifully with me, and thou shalt 
make mention of me to Pharao, and 
thou shalt bring me forth out of this 
dungeon. ''^For surely I was stolen 
away out of the land of the Hebrews, 



and here I have done nothing, but they 
have cast me into tliis pit. "* And the 
chief baker saw that he interpreted 
aright, and he said to Joseph, I also 
saw a dream, and methought I took up 
on my head three baskets of mealy 
food. ''And in the upper basket 
there was the work of the baker of 
every kind wliich Pharao eats, and the 
fowls of the air ate them out of the 
basket that was on my head. '^And 
Joseph answered and said to him. This 
is the interpretation of it. The three 
baskets are three days. '^Yet three 
days, and Pharao shall take away thy 
head from off thee, and shall hang 
thee on a tree, and the birds of the sky 
shall eat thy flesh from off thee. ^°iVnd 
it came to pass on the tliird day that it 
was Pharao's birth-day, and he made a 
banquet for all his servants, and he 
remembered the office of the cupbearer 
and the office of the baker in the midst 
of his servants. ^' And he restored the 
chief cupbearer to liis office, and he 
gave the cup into Pharao's hand. 
^^And he hanged the chief baker, as 
Joseph interpreted to them. ^^Yet 
did not the chief cupbearer remember 
Joseph, but forgot liim. 

41. And it came to pass after two 
^ full years that Pharao had a + or. years of 
dream. He thought he ^^^^' 
stood upon the hank o/'the river. ^And

ears thin and blasted with the wind 
grew up after them. ''And the seven 
thin ears and blasted with the wind 
devoured the seven choice and full ears, 
and Pharao awoke, and it was a dream. 
* And it was morning, and his soul was 
troubled, and he sent and called all 
the intei-preters of Egypt, and all her 
wise men, and Pharao related to them 
his dream, and there was no one to

^And the cliief cupbearer spoke to 
Pharao, saying, I this day remember 
my fault: '"Pharao was angry with 
his servants and put us in prison in the 
house of the captain of the guard, both 
me and the chief baker. ''And we

night, I and he, we saw, each accord- 
ing to his dream. '^And there was 
there with us a young man, a Hebrew 
servant of the captain of the guard,

he interpreted them to us. '^And it 
came to pass, as he interpreted them 
to us, so also it happened, both that I 
was restored to my office, and that he 
was hanged. '''And Pharao ha vino- 
sent, called Joseph, and they brought 
him out from the prison, and shaved 
him, and changed his dress, and he 
came to Pharao. '^And Pharao said 
to Joseph, I have seen a vision, and

dreams and interpret them. '^And 
Joseph answered Pharao and said. 
Without God an answer of safety shall 
not be given to Pharao. '^And Pharao 
spoke to Joseph saying. In my dream 
methought I stood by the bank of the 
river, '^and there came up as it were out 
of the river, seven cows well-favoured 
and choice-fleshed, and they fed on the 
sedge. '^And behold seven other cows 
came up after them out of the river, 
evil and ill-favoured and lean-fleshed, 
such that I never saw worse in all the 
land of Egypt. ^°And the seven ill- 
favoured and thin cows ate up the seven 



first good and choice cows. ^'And 
they went into their bellies, and 
^ it was not perceptible that +gc. they were, 
they had gone into their bellies, and 
their appearance was ill-favoured, as 
also at the beginning, and after I awoke 
I slept, ^^and saw again in my sleep, 
and as it were seven ears came up on 
one stem, full and good. ^^ And other 
seven ears thin and blasted with the 
wind sprang up close to them. ^''And 
the seven thin and blasted ears de- 
voured the seven fine and full ears ; so 
I spoke to the interpreters and there 
was no one to explain it to me. 

^'^And Joseph said to Pharao, the 
dream of Pharao is one, whatever God 
does, he has shewn to Pharao. ^""The 
seven good cows are seven years, and 
the seven good ears are seven years, 
the dream of Pharao is one. ^^And 
the seven thin kine that came up after 
them are seven years, and the seven 
thin and blasted ears are seven years; 
there shall be seven years of famine. 
^^And as for the word which I have 
told Pharao, whatsoever God intends to 
do, he has shewn to Pharao : ^^ Behold 
for seven years there is coming great 
plenty in all the land of Egypt. ^° But 
there shall come seven years of famine 
after these, and they shall forget the 
plenty that shall be in all Eg3rpt, and 
the famine shall consume the land. 
^' And the plenty shall not be known 
in the land by reason of the famine 
that shall be after this, for it shall be 
very grievous. ^^And concerning the 
repetition of the dream to Pharao 
twice, it is because the saying which is 
from God shall be true, and God will 
hasten to accomplish it. ^^Now then 
look out a wise and prudent man, and 
set him over the land of Egypt. ^''And 
let Pharao make and appoint local 
governors over the land, and let them 
take up a fifth part of all the produce 
of the land of Egypt for the seven 
years of the plenty. ^'^And let them 
gather all the food of these seven good 
years that are coming, and let the corn

word was pleasing in the sight of 
Pharao, and in the sight of all his

^^ And Pharao said to all his servants. 
Shall we find such a man as tliis, who 
has the spirit of God in him? ^^And 
Pharao said to Joseph, since God has 
shewed thee all these things, there is 
not a wiser or more prudent man than 
thou, '*°Thou shalt be over my house, 
and all my people shall be obedient to

throne will I excel thee. "" And 
Pharao said to Joseph, Behold, I set 
thee this day over all the land of Egypt. 
■•^And Pharao having taken liis ring 
off his hand, put it on the hand of 
Joseph, and put on liim a robe of fine 
linen, and put a necklace of gold about 
his neck. *^ And he mounted him on the j 
second of his chariots, and a herald 
made proclamation before him, and he 
set him over all the land of Egypt.

of famine began to come, as Joseph 
said ; and there was a famine in all the

departed thence. ^^And one having

servants, and our asses. '^ And having 
approached the man who was over the

journey. ^^And he gave to them all 
two sets of raiment apiece, but to 
Benjamin he gave three hundred pieces 
of gold, and five changes of raiment.

the same rate, and ten asses bearing of 
all the good things of Egypt, and ten 
mules bearing bread for his father for 
the journey. ^''Aiid he sent away his

to them. Be not angry by the way.

And Pharao said to Joseph, Let them 
dwell in the land of Gesem, and if thou 
knowest that there are among them 
able men, make them overseers of my 
cattle. So Jacob and liis sons came 
into Egypt to Joseph, and Pharao 
king of Egypt heard of it. ^And 
Pharao spoke to Joseph, saying, thy 
father and thy brethren are come to 
thee. ^ Behold, the land of Egypt is 
before thee, settle thy father and thy 
brethren in the best land. '^And 
Joseph brought in Jacob his father and 
set him before Pharao ; and Jacob

the hfe of my fathers, in which days 
they sojourned. ^"And Jacob blessed 
Pharao, and departed from him. ' ' And 
Joseph settled his father and his bre- 
thren, and gave them a possession in 
the land of Egypt, in the best land, in 
the land of Eamesses, as Pharao com- 
manded. '^And Jacob gave provision 



to his father and his brethren, and to 
all the house of his father, corn for 
each person. 

^^And there was no corn in all the 
land, for the famine prevailed greatly;

Chanaan fainted for the famine. ^^And 
Joseph gathered all the money that 
was found in the land of Egypt and 
the land of Chanaan ; in return for the 
corn which they bought, and he dis- 
tributed corn to them, and Joseph 
brought all the money into the house 
of Pharao. '^ And all the money failed 
out of the land of Egypt, and out of 
the land of Chanaan, and all the 
Egyptians came to Joseph, saying, 
Give us bread, and why do we die in 
thy presence? for our money is spent. 
'^And Joseph said to them. Bring 
your cattle, and 1 will give you bread 
for your cattle, if your money is spent. 
^''Ajid they brought their cattle to 
Joseph, and Joseph gave them bread 
in return for their horses, and for their 
sheep, and for their oxen, and for their 
asses, and Joseph maintained them 
with bread for all their cattle in that 
year. '**And that year passed, and 
they came to him in the second year,

sumed from before our lord ? for if oiu* 
money has failed, and our possessions,

lord, and there has not been left to us 
before our lord more than our own

titute. ^^In order then that we die 
not before thee, and the land be made 
desolate, buy us and our land for bread, 
and we and our land will be servants 
to Pharao : give seed that we may sow 
and live and not die, so our land shall 
not be made desolate. ^° And Joseph 
bought all the land of the Egyptians 
for Pharao, for the Egyptians sold their 
land to Pharao, for the famine pre- 
vailed against them, and the land be- 
came Pharao's. ^' And he brought the 
people into bondage to him for ser- 
vants, from one extremity of Egypt to

the other. ^^ Except only the land of 
the priests; Joseph bought not this, 
for Pharao gave a portion in the way 
of gift to the priests, and they ate their 
portion which Pharao gave them, there- 
fore they sold not their land. ^^And 
Joseph said to all the Egyptians, Be- 
hold I have bought you and your land 
this day for Pharao, take seed for yovi 
and sow the land. ^^And there shall 
be the fruits of it, and ye shall give the 
fifth part to Pharao, and the four re- 
ynainimi parts shall be for yourselves 
for seed for the earth, and for food for 
you, and all that are in your houses. 
^^And they said, Thou hast saved us; 
we have found favour before our lord, 
and we will be servants to Pharao. 
^® And Joseph appointed it to them for 
an ordinance until this day, to reserve 
a fifth part for Pharao on the land of 
Egypt, except only the land of the 
priests, that was not Pharao's. 

^^And Israel dwelt in Egypt in the 
land of Gesem, and they gained an in- 
heritance upon it, and they increased 
and multiplied very greatly. ^^ And 
Jacob survived seventeen years in the 
land of Egypt, and Jacob's days of the 
years of his Hfe were a hundred and 
forty-seven years. ^^And the days of 
Israel drew nigh for him to die, and 
he called his son Joseph, and said to 
him. If I have found favour before 
thee, put thy hand under my thigh, 
and thou shalt execute mercy and truth 
toward me, so as not to bury me in 
Egypt. ^°But I will sleep with my 
fathers, and thou shalt carry me up out 
of Egypt, and bury me in their sepul- 
chre. And he said, I will do accord- 
ing to thy word. ^'And he said, 
Swear to me, and he swore to him. 
And Israel did reverence, leaning on 
the top of his staiF. 

48. And it came to pass after these 
things that it was reported to Joseph, 
Behold thy father is ill ; and hav- 
ing taken his two sons Manasse and 
Ephraim he came to elacob. '^And 



it was reported to Jacob, saying, Be- 
hold thy son Joseph cometh to thee, 
and Israel having strengthened liimself 
sat upon the bed. ^ And Jacob said to 
Joseph, My God appeared to me in 
Luza in the land of Chanaan, and 
blessed me, and said to me, ■* Behold I 
will increase thee and multiply thee, 
and will make of thee mviltitudes of 
nations, and I will give this land to 
thee and to thy seed after thee for an 
everlasting possession. ^ Now then thy 
two sons who were bom to thee in the 
land of Egypt before I came to thee 
into Egypt, are mine, Ephraim and 
Manasse, as Ruben and Symeon they 
shall be mine. ^And the children 
which thou shalt beget hereafter, shall 
be in the name of their brethren, they 
shall be named after their inheritances. 
"And as for me when I came out of 
Mesopotamia of Syria, Rachel thy 
mother died in the land of Chanaan, 
as I drew nigh to the horse-course of 
Chabratha of the land of Chanaan, so 
as to come to Ephratha, and I buried 
her in the road of the course, this is 
Bethlehem. ^And when Israel saw 
the sons of Joseph, he said, Who are 
these to thee? ^And Joseph said to 
his father, They are my sons, whom 
God gave me here; and Jacob said, 
Bring me them that I may bless them. 
^^Now the eyes of Israel were dim 
through age, and he could not see, 
and he brought them near to him, 
and he kissed them and embraced 
them. "And Israel said to Joseph, 
Behold, I have not been deprived of 
seeing thy face, and lo ! God has 
showed me thy seed also. '^And 
Joseph brought them out from between 
his knees, and they did reverence to 
him, with their face to the ground. 
'^And Joseph took his two sons, both 
I^phraim in his right hand, but o\\ the

hand on the head of Manasse, guiding 
his hands crosswise. 

^^And he blessed them and said,

were well pleasing, even Abraam and 
Isaac, the God who continues to feed 
me from my youth imtil this day : ^^ The 
angel who dehvers me from all evils, 
bless these boys, and my name shall 
be called upon them, and the name of 
my fathers Abraam and Isaac, and let 
them be increased to a great multitude

seen that his father put his right hand 
on the head of Ephraim — it seemed 
grievous to liim, and Joseph took hold 
of the hand of his father, to remove it 
from the head of Ephraim to the head 
of Manasse. ^^ And Joseph said to his 
father, Not so, father, for this is the 
first-born, lay thy right-hand upon his 
head. ^^ And he would not, but said, 
I know it, son, I know it; he also 
shall be a people, and he shall be ex- 
alted, but liis younger brother shall be 
greater than he, and his seed shall be- 
come a multitude of nations. ^"And 
he blessed them in that day, saying. 
In you shall Israel be blessed, saying, 
God make thee as Ephraim and Ma- 
nasse, and he set Ephraim before 
Manasse. ^^And Israel said to Joseph, 
Behold, I die, and God shall be with 
you, and restore you to the land of 
your fathers. ^^And I give to thee 
Sicima, a select portion above thy bre-

■^ And Joseph commanded liis servants

'And they fulfilled forty days for him,

seventy days. ''And when the days of 
mourning were past, Joseph spoke to

saying, ^My father adjured me, saying. 
In the sepulclire which I dug for my- 
self in the land of Chanaan, there thou 
shalt bury me ; now then I will go up 
and bury my father and return again. 
^And Pharao said to Joseph, Go up, 
bury thy father, as he constrained thee 
to swear. ^ So Joseph went up to 
bury his father, and all the servants of 
Pharao went up with him, and the 
elders of liis house, and all the elders 
of the land of Egypt. ^ And all the 
household of Joseph, and his brethren, 
and all the house of his father, and liis 
kindred, and they left behind the sheep

^And there went up with liim also 
chariots and horsemen, and there was 
a very great company. '^ And they 
came to the threshing-floor of Atad, 
which is beyond Jordan, and they 
bewailed him wath a great and very 
sore lamentation, and he made a mourn- 
ing for his father seven days. "And 
the inhabitants of the land of Chanaan 
saw the mourning at the floor of Atad 
and said, This is a great mourning to 
the Egy[)tians ; therefore he called its 
name The mourning of Egypt, -which 
is beyond Jordan. '^Aiid thus his 



sons did to him.

said, Let us take heed, lest at any time 
Joseph remember evil against us, and

we have done against liim. ^^And

CHAPTER I.— II. Verses 1—3. 



1 . THESE are the names of the sons 
of Israel that came into Egypt together 
with Jacob their father ; they came in 
each with their whole family. ^ Ruben, 
Simeon, Levi, Judas, ^Issachar, Za- 
bulon, Benjamin, * Dan and Nepthalim, 
Gad and Aser. ^But Joseph was in 
Egypt. And all the souls born of Jacob 
were seventy-five. ^And Joseph died, 
and all his brethren, and all that ge- 
neration. '^ And the children of Israel 
increased and multiplied, and became 
numerous and grew exceedingly strong, 
and the land multiplied them. ^And 
there arose up another king over Egypt, 
who knew not Joseph. '•* And he said 
to his nation, Behold the race of the 
children of Israel is a great multitude, 
and is stronger than we : ^'^ Come then, 
let us deal craftily with them, lest at 
any time they be increased, and when- 
soever war shall happen to us, these 
also shall be added to our enemies, and 
having prevailed against us in war, 
they will depart out of the land. ' ' And 
he set over them task-masters, who 
should afflict them in their works, and 
they built strong cities for Pharao, both 
Pitho, and Ramesses, and On, wliich 
is HeUopoUs. '^But as they humbled 
them, by so much they multiplied, and 
grew exceedingly strong, and the 
Egyptians greatly abhorred the chil- 
dren of Israel. ''And the Egyptians 
tyi-annised over the children oi Israel 
by force. '■* And they embittered their 
life by hard labours, in the clay and in 
brick-making, and all the works in the 
plains, according to all the works, 



wherein they caused them to serve 
with violence. 

'•^And the king of the Egyptians 
spoke to the midwives of the Hebrews, 
the name of the one was Sepphora, 
and the name of the second Phua. 
'•"And he said, when ye do the office 
of midwives to the Hebrew women, 
and they are about to be delivered, if 
it be a male, kill it, but if a female, 
save it. '^But the midwives feared 
God, and did not as the king of Egypt 
appointed them, and they saved the 
male children alive. '"^And the king 
of Egypt called the midwives, and said 
to them, Wliy is it that ye have done 
this thing, and saved the male children 
aHve? '^And the midwives said to 
Pharao, the Hebrew women are not 
as the women of Egypt, for they are 
delivered before the midwives go in 
to them. So they bore children. 
^°And God did well to the midwives, 
and the people multiphed, and grew 
very strong. ^'And as the midwives 
feared God, they established for them- 
selves famihes. ^^And Pharao charged 
all his people, saying, Wliatever male 
shall be born to the Hebrews, cast 
into the river, and every female, save 
it aHve. 

2. And there was a certain man of 
the tribe of Levi, who took to wife 
one of the daughters of Levi. ^And 
she conceived and bore a male child, 
and having seen that he was fair, they 
hid him three months. 'And when 
they could no longer hide him, his

mother took for him an ark, and be- 
+ t. e. apecu- smeared it with ^bitmnen, 
^e"embto™ve! and cast the child into it, 
getabie pitch, ^nd put it in the ooze by 
the river. ■* And his sister was watch- 
ing from a distance, to learn what 
would happen to him. ^And the 
daughter of Pharao came down to the 
river to bathe, and her maids walked 
by the river's side, and having seen the 
ark in the ooze, she sent her maid, and 
took it up. ^And having opened it 
she sees the babe weeping in the ark, 
and the daughter of Pharao had com- 
passion on it, and said. This is 07ie of 
the Hebrews' children. ^ And his 
sister said to the daughter of Pharao, 
Wilt thou that I call to thee a nurse of 
the Hebrews, and shall she suckle the 
child for thee ? * And the daughter of 
Pharao said, Go : and the young woman 
went and called the mother of the 
child. ^And the daughter of Pharao 
said to her. Take care of this child, and 
suckle it for me, and I will give thee 
the wages, and the woman took the 
child, and suckled it. ^*^And when the 
boy was grown, she brought him to the 
daughter of Pharao, and he became 
her son, and she called his name Moses, 
saying, I took him out of the water. 

''And it came to pass in that length 
of time, that Moses having grown, went 
out to his brethren the sons of Israel, 
and having noticed their distress, he sees 
an Egyptian smiting a certain Hebrew 
of his brethren the children of Israel. 
'^And having looked round this way 
and that way, he sees no one, and he 
smote the Egyptian and hid him in 
the sand. '^And having gone out the 
second day he sees two Hebrew men 
fighting, and he says to the injurer. 
Wherefore smitest thou thy neighbour ? 
'■^And he said, Wlao made thee a ruler 
and a judge over us? wilt thou slay me 
as thou yesterday slewest the Egyptian ? 
Then Moses was alarmed and said. If 
it be thus, tliis matter has become 
known. '^And Pharao heard this 
matter and sought to slay Moses, and 



Moses departed from the presence of 
Pharao, and dwelt in the land of 
Madiam, and having come into the 
land of Madiam, he sat on the well. 
•^And the priest of Madiam had seven 
daughters, feeding the flock of their 
father Jothor, and they came and drew 
water until they filled their pitchers, 
to water the flock of their father Jothor. 
'^And the shepherds came and were 
driving them away, and Moses rose up 
and rescued them, and drew water for 
them, and watered their sheep. '^And 
they came to Raguel their father, and 
he said to them, Wliy have ye come 
so quickly to-day? '^And they said, 
an Egyptian delivered us from the 
shepherds, and drew water for us and 
watered our sheep. ^"^And he said to 
his daughters, and where is he? and 
why have ye left the man? call him 
therefore , that he may eat bread. ^ ' And 
Moses was estabHshed with the man, 
and he gave Sepphora his daughter to 
Moses to wife. ^^And the woman con- 
ceived and bore a son, and Moses called 
his name Gersam, saying, I am a so- 
journer in a strange land. ^^And in 
those days after a length of time, the 
king of Egypt died, and the children 
of Israel groaned because of their tasks, 
and cried, and their cry because of their 
tasks went up to God. ^"^And God 
heard their groanings, and God re- 
membered his covenant made with 
Abraam and Isaac and Jacob. ^'^And 
God looked upon the children of Israel 
and was made known to them. 

3. And Moses was feeding the flock 
of Jothor liis father-in-law, the priest 
of Madiam, and he brought the sheep 
nigh to the wilderness, and came to 
the mount of Choreb. ^And an angel 
of the Lord appeared to him in 
^ flaming fire out of the + or. fire of 
bush, and he sees that the *'*"'^- 
bush burns with fire, — ^but the bush 
was not consiuned. ^ And Moses said, 
I will go near and see this great 
sight, why the bush is not consumed.

'' And when the Lord saw that he drew 
nigh to sec, the Lord called liim out 
of the bush, saying, Moses, Moses, and 
he said, What is it? ^And he said. 
Draw not nigh hither, loose thy san- 
dals from off thy feet, for the place 
whereon thou standest is holy ground. 
tMat. 22. 32. «And he said, ^I am the 
God of thy father, the God of Abraam, 
and the God of Isaac, and the God of 
Jacob, and Moses turned away his face, 
for he was afraid to gaze at God. ^And 
the Lord said to Moses, I have surely 
seen the affliction of my people that is 
in Egypt, and I have heard their cry 
caused by their task-masters, for I 
know their affliction. ^ And I have 
come down to deliver them out of the 
hand of the Egyptians, and to bring 
them out of that land, and to bring 
them into a good and wide land, into 
a land flowing with milk and honey, 
into the place of the Chananites, and 
the Chettites, and Amorites, and Phe- 
rezites, and Gergesites, and Evites, and 
Jebusites. ^And now behold the cry 
of the children of Israel is come to me, 
and I have seen the affliction with 
which the Egyptians afflict them. 
'"And now come, I will send thee to 
Pharao king of Egypt, and thou shalt 
bring out my people the children of 
Israel from the land of Egypt. 

"And Moses said to God, Wlio am 
I, that I should go to Pharao king of 
Egypt, and that I should bring out 
the children of Israel from the land of 
Egypt? '^And God spoke to Moses, 
saying, I will be with thee, and this 
shall be the sign to thee that I shall 
send thee forth, — when thou bringest 
out my people out of Egypjt, then ye 
shall serve God in this mountam. 
'^And Moses said to God, Behold I 
shall go forth to the children of Israel, 
and shall say to them, the God of 
our fathers has sent me to you ; and 
they mil ask me. What is his name? 
AVhat shall I say to them? '^ And 
God spoke to Moses, saying, I am 
THE BEING, and he said, Thus 



shall ye say to the children of Israel, 
THE BEING has sent me to you. 
'^And God said again to Moses, Thus 
shalt thou say to the sons of Israel, 
the Lord God of our fathers, the God 
of Abraam, and God of Isaac, and God 
of Jacob has sent me to you, this is 
my name for ever, and my memorial to 
generations of generations. '** Go then 
and gather the elders of the children 
of Israel, and thou shalt say to them, 
the Lord God of our fathers has ap- 
peared to me, the God of Abraam, and 
God of Isaac, and God of Jacob, say- 
ing, I have surely looked upon you, 
and upon all the tilings which have 
happened to you in Egypt. '^And 
he said, I will bring you up out of the 
affliction of the Egyptians to the land 
of the Chananites and the Chettites, 
and Amorites and Pherezites, and Ger- 
gesites, and Evites, and Jebusites, to 
a land flowing with milk and honey. 
'^ And they shall hearken to thy voice, 
and thou and the elders of Israel shall 
go in to Pharao king of Egypt, and 
thou shalt say to liim, the God of the 
Hebrews has called us, we will go then 
a journey of three days into the wilder- 
ness, that we may sacrifice to our God. 
'^ But I know that Pharao king of 
Egypt will not let you go, save with a 
mighty hand, ■^" and I will stretch out my 
hand, and smite the Egyptians with all 
my wonders, which I shall work among 
them, and after that he will send you 
forth. '■^'And I will give this people 
favour in the sight of the Egyptians, 
and whenever ye shall escape, ye shall 
not depart empty. '^'^ But every woman 
shall ask of her neighbour and fellow-

apparel; and ye shall put them upon 
your sons and upon your daughters, — 
and spoil ye the Egyptians.

say, God has not appeared to thee),

of the children of Israel. ^^ And Aaron 
spoke all these words, which God spoke 
to Moses, and wrought the miracles 
before the people. ^^And the people 
believed and rejoiced, because God 
visited the children of Israel, and be- 
cause he saw their affliction, and the 
people bowed and worshipped. 

5. And after this went in Moses and 
Aaron to Pharao, and they said to him. 
These things says the Lord God of 
Israel, Send my people away, that they 
may keep a feast to me in the wilder- 
ness. ^And Pharao said. Who is he 
that I should hearken to his voice, so 
that I should send away the children 
of Israel, I do not know the Lord, and 
+ Gr. do not I ^will uot let Isracl go. 
let, &c. 3 And they say to him, the 

God of the Hebrews has called us to 
him, we will go therefore a three days 
journey into the wilderness, that we 
may sacrifice to the Lord our God, lest 
at any time death or slaughter happen 
to us. ''And the king of Egypt said 
to them, Wliy do ye, Moses and Aaron, 
turn the people from their works? de- 
part each of you to your works. ^And 
Pharao said, Behold now the people is 
very numerous, let us not then give 
them rest from their work. ^And 
Pharao gave orders to the task-masters 
of the people and the accomptants, 
sapng, '^Ye shall no longer give straw 
to the people for brick-making as yes- 
terday and the third day, but let them 
go themselves, and collect straw for 
themselves. *And thou shalt impose 



on them daily the rate of brick-making 
which they perform, thou shalt not 
abate anything, for they are idle, there- 
fore have they cried, saying, Let us 
arise and do sacrifice to our God, ^ Let 
the works of these men be made griev- 
ous, and let them care for these tilings, 
and not care for vain words. 

'°And the taskmasters and the ac- 
comptants hastened them, and they 
spoke to the people, saying, thus says 
Pharao, I loill give you straw no 
longer. '^Go ye, yourselves, get for 
yourselves straw whcncesoever ye can 
find it, for nothing is diminished from 
your rate. '^ So the people were dis- 
persed in all the land of Egypt, to 
gather stubble for straw. '^And the 
taskmasters hastened them saying, 
Fulfil your regular daily tasks, even 
as when straw was given you. ^* And 
the accomptants of the race of the 
children of Israel who were set over 
them by the masters of Pharao were 
scourged [^and questioned, '\ tsuppUcdfrom 
men saying, Why have ye ^^^ Hebrew. 
not fulfilled your rates of brick-work 
as yesterday and the third day, to-day 
also? '^ And the accomptants of the 
children of Israel went in and cried 
to Pharao, saying. Why dost thou act 
thus to thy servants ? "^ Straw is not 
given to thy servants, and they tell us 
to make brick, and behold thy ser- 
vants have been scourged, thou wilt 
therefore injure thy people. '^And he 
said to them, Ye arc idle, ye are idlers, 
therefore ye say. Let us go a7id do 
sacrifice to our God. '^Now then go 
and work, for straw shall not be given 
to you, yet ye shall return the rate of 
bricks. '^And the accomptants of the 
children of Israel saw themselves in 
an evil plight, me7i saying. Ye shall 
not fail ' to dehy er the daily , ^^ ^^^^ ^^^

have made our savour abominable be- 
fore Pharao, and before his servants, 
to put a sword into his hands to slay 
us. '-^^ And Moses turned to the Lord, 
and said, I pray, Lord, why hast thou 
afflicted this people ? and wherefore 
hast thou sent me .'' ^^ For from the time 
that I went to Pharao to speak in thy 
name, he has afflicted this people, and 
thou hast not deHvered thy people. 

6. And the Lord said to Moses, 
Now thou shalt see what I will do to 
Pharao; for he shall send them forth 
with a mighty hand, and with a high 
arm shall he cast them out of his land. 
^And God spoke to Moses and said to 
him, I a7n the Lord. ^And I ap- 
peared to Abraam and Isaac and Ja- 
cob, being their God, but I did not 
manifest to them my name ^Lord.

venant with them, to give them the 
land of the Chananites, the land wherein 
theysojoiu-ned, in which also they dwelt 
as strangers. ^ And I hearkened to the 
groaning of the children of Israel (the 
affliction with which the Egyptians 
enslave them) and I remembered the

Egyptians, and I will dehver you from

a high arm, and great judgment. '^And 
I will take you to me a people for 
myself, and will be your God, and ye 
shall know that I am the Lord your 
God, who brought you out from the 
tyranny of the Egyptians. *And I 
will bring you into the land concern- 
ing which I stretched out my hand to 
give it to Abraam and Isaac and 
Jacob, and I will give it you for an 
inheritance : I am the Lord. ^ And 
Moses spoke thus to the sons of Israel, 
and they hearkened not to Moses for 
faint-heartedness, and for their hard 
tasks. '''And the Lord spoke to Moses, 
saying, "Go in, speak to Pharao king 



of Egypt, that he send forth the 
children of Israel out of his land. 
'^And Moses spoke before the Lord, 
saying. Behold, the children of Israel 
hearkened not to me, and how shall 
Pharao hearken to me? and I am not 
eloquent. '^And the Lord spoke to 
Moses and Aaron, and gave them a 
charge to Pharao king of Egypt, that 
he should send forth the children of 
Israel out of the land of Egypt.

Give us a sign or a wonder, then shalt 
thou say to thy brother Aaron, Take 
thy rod and cast it upon the ground

Moses and Aaron went in before Pha-

did so, as the Lord commanded them,

Pharao, and before his servants, and 
it became a serpent. ^' But Pharao

manded them ; and Aaron having lifted 
up his hand with his rod, smote the

the water in the river into blood.

the river stank thereupon, and the 
Egyptians could not drink water from

sorceries, and the heart of Pharao was 
hardened, and he did not hearken to 
them, even as the Lord said. ^^And 
Pharao tui-ned and entered into his 
house, nor did he fix his attention 
even on this thing. ^"*And all the 
Egyptians dug round about the river,

the canals, and over the pools, and bring 
up the frogs. ^And Aaron stretched 
forth his hand over the waters of 
Egypt, and brought up the frogs and 
the frog was brought up, and covered 
the land of Egypt. "^ And the charm- 



ers of the Egyptians also did likewise 
with their sorceries, and brouglit up 
the frogs on the land of Egypt. ** And 
Pharao called Moses and Aaron and 
said, Pray for me to the Lord, and let 
him take away the frogs from me and 
from my people, and I will send them 
away, and they shall sacrifice to the 
Lord. ^And Moses said to Pharao, 
Appoint me a time when I shall pray 
for thee, and for thy servants, and for 
thy people, to cause the frogs to dis- 
appear from thee, and from thy people, 
and from your houses, only in the 
river shall they be left behind. '° And 
he said. On the morrow, he said there- 
fore. As thou hast said ; that thou 
may est know, that there is no other 
God but the Lord. ''And the frogs 
shall be removed away from thee, and 
from your houses and from the villages, 
and from thy servants, and from thy 
people, only in the river they shall be 
left. '^And Moses and Aaron went 
forth from Pharao, and Moses cried 
to the Lord concerning the restriction 
of the frogs, as Pharao appointed him. 
'^ And the Lord did as Moses said, and 
the frogs died out of the houses, and 
out of the villages, and out of the fields. 
'"• And they gathered tliem together in 
heaps, and the land stank. '^And 
when Pharao saw that there was relief, 
his heart was hardened, and he did not 
hearken to them, as the Lord spoke.

Aaron, stretch forth thy rod with thy 
hand and smite the dust of the earth, 
and there shall be lice both upon man, 
and upon quadrupeds, and in all the 
land of Egypt. '^ So Aaron stretched 
out his rod with his hand, and smote 
the dust of the earth, and the lice 
were on men and on quadrupeds, and 
in all the dust of the earth there were 
lice. '^And the charmers also did so 
with their sorceries, to bring forth the 
louse, and they could not. And the 
lice were both on the men and on the 
quadrupeds. '^ So the charmers said 
to Pharao, this is the finger of God.

Lord said. '^"And the Lord said to 
Moses, Rise up early in the morning,

into the houses of Pharao, and into 
the houses of his servants, and into all 
the land of Egypt, and the land was 
destroyed by the dog-fly.

Aaron, saying. Go and sacrifice to the 
Lord your God in the land. ^^And 
Moses said, It cannot be so, for we 
shall sacrifice to the Lord our God the 
abominations of the Egyptians, for if 
we sacrifice the abominations of the 
Egyptians before them, we shall be 
stoned. ^^ We Avill go a journey of 
three days into the wilderness, and we 
will sacrifice to the Lord our God, as 
the Lord said to us. ^^'And Pharao 
said, I will let you go, and do ye sacri- 
fice to your God in the wilderness, but 
do not go very far away, pray then for 
me to the Lord. '^'-"And Moses said, J 
then will go forth from thee and pray 
to God, and the dog-fly shall depart 
both from thy servants, and from thy 
people to-morrow. Do not thou, Pha- 
rao, deceive again, so as not to send

the people away to do sacrifice to the 
Lord. ^"And Moses went out from 
Pharao, and prayed to God. ^'And 
the Lord did as Moses said, and re- 
moved the dog-fly from Pharao, and 
from his servants, and from his people,

Pharao hardened his heart, even on 
this occasion, and he would not send

Stretch out thine hand over the 
land of Egypt, and let the locust come 
up on the land, and it shall devour 
every herb of the land, and all the 
fruit of the trees, which the hail left. 
'^And Moses lifted up his rod towards 
heaven, and the Lord brought a south 
wind upon the earth, all that day and 
all that night: the morning dawned, 
and the south wind brought up the 
locusts, and brought them up over 
all the land of Egypt. ^'^And they 
rested in very great abundance over all 
the borders of Egypt. Before them 
there were not such locusts, neither 
after them shall there be. '^And they 
covered the face of the earth, and the 
land was wasted, and they devoured 
all the herbage of the land, and all the 
fruit of the trees, wliich was left by 
the hail, there was no green thing left 
on the trees, nor on all the herbage of 
the field, in all the land of Egypt.

man saw his brother, and no man rose 
up from his bed for three days, but ail

Pharao called Moses and Aaron, say-

sacrifice to the Lord our God. ^''And 
our cattle shall go with us, and we will 
not leave a hoof behind, for of them

send you forth thence, and whenever 
he sends you forth with every thing, 
he will indeed drive you out. ^ Speak 
therefore secretly in the ears of the 
people, and let every one ask of his 
neighbour jewels of silver and gold,

his people favour in the sight of the 
Egyptians, and they lent to them ; and

I go forth into the midst of Egypt.

be a great cry through all the land of 
Egypt, such as has not been, and such 
shall not be repeated any more. ^ But 
among all the children of Israel shall 
not a dog snarl with his tongue, either 
at man or beast, that thou mayest 
know how wide a distinction the Lord 
will make between the Egyptians and 
Israel. ^And all these thy servants 
shall come down to me, and do me 
reverence, saying. Go forth, thou and 
all the people over whom thou pre- 
sidest, and afterwards I will go forth. 
^And Moses went forth from Pharao 
with wrath. And the Lord said to 
Moses, Pharao will not hearken to you,

these signs and wonders in the land of

night, and his sei-vants, and all the 
Egjrptians, and there was a great cry

ye and the children of Israel. Go and 
serve the Lord your God, even as ye 
say. ^^And take with you your sheep,

Wliat is this that we have done, to let

should not serve us ? ^ So Pharao 
yoked his chariots, and led off all 
his people with himself: ''having also 
taken six hundred chosen chariots, and 
all the cavalry of the Egyptians, and 
riders over all. ^And the Lord hard- 
ened the heart of Pharao king of 
Egypt, and of liis servants; and he 
pursued after the children of Israel,

camp of Israel, and stood, and there 
was darkness and blackness, and the 
night passed, and they came not near

Egyptians dead by the shore of the 
sea. ^'And Israel saw the mighty 
hand, in the things which the Lord 
did to the Egyptians, and the people 
feared the Lord, and they believed 
God and Moses his servant. 

15. Then sang Moses and the chil- 
dren of Israel this song to God, and 
spoke, saying. Let us sing to the Lord, 
for he is very greatly glorified, horse 
and rider he has thrown into the sea. 
^ He was to me a helper and protector

parted asunder; the waters were con- 
gealed as a wall, the waves were con- 
gealed in the midst of the sea. ''The 
enemy said, I will pursue, I will over-

Lord, for he has been very greatly 
glorified, the horse and rider has he 
cast into the sea. ^^ So Moses brought 
up the children of Israel from the lied 
Sea, and brought them into the wilder- 
ness of Sur, and they went three days 
in the wilderness, and found no water 
to drink. ^^And they came to Merr- 
ha and could not drink of Merrha, 
for it was bitter, therefore he named 
the name of that place. Bitterness. 
^*And the people murmured against 
Moses, saying, \Vhat shall we drink? 
^^And Moses cried to the Lord, and 
the Lord showed him a tree, and he 
cast it into the water, and the water 
was sweetened, there he established to 
him ordinances and judgments, and 
there he proved him, ^^and said, If thou 
wilt indeed hear the voice of the Lord 
thy God, and do tilings pleasing be- 
fore liim, and wilt hearken to liis com- 
mands, and keep all liis ordinances, no 
disease wliich I have brought upon the 
Egyptians will I bring upon thee, for 
I am the Lord thy God that heals 
thee. ^'^ And they came to -3ilim, and 
there were there twelve fountains of 
water, and seventy stems of palm-trees, 
and they encamped there by the waters. 

16. And they departed from jElim, 
and all the congregation of the cliil- 
dren of Israel came to the wilderness 
of Sin, which is between j3ilim and 
Sina, and on the fifteenth day, in the 
second month after their departure 
from the land of Egypt, ^all the con- 
gregation of the cliildren of Israel 
murmured against Moses and Aaron. 
^And the cliildren of Israel said to 
them, Would we had died smitten by 
the Lord in the land of Egypt, when 
we sat by the flesh-pots, and ate bread 
to satiety, for ye have brought us out 
into tliis wilderness, to slay all this 
congregation with hunger. ^And the 
Lord said to ]\Ioses, Behold, I will 
rain bread upon you out of heaven, 
and the people shall go forth, and they 
shall gather their daily portion for the 



day, that I may try them whether they 
wiU walk in my law or not. ^And it 
shall come to pass on the sixth day 
that they shall prepare whatsoever 
they have brought in, and it shall be 
double of what they shall have gathered 
for the day, daily: ^and Moses and 
Aaron said to all the congregation of 
the cliildi-en of Israel, At even ye shall 
know that the Lord has brought you 
out of the land of Egypt; ^ And in the 
morning ye shall see the glory of the 
Lord, inasmuch as he hears your mur- 
muring against God, and who are we 
that ye continue to murmur against 
us? ^ And Moses said This shall be when. 
the Lord gives you in the evening flesh 
to eat, and bread in the morning to 
satiety, because the Lord has heard 
your murmuring, which ye murmur 
against us, and what are we? for your 
murmuring is not against us, but 
against God. 

^And Moses said to Aaron, Say to 
all the congregation of the children of 
Israel, Come near before God, for he 
has heard your murmuring. '^And 
when Aaron spoke to all the congre- 
gation of the cliildren of Israel, and 
they turned toward the wilderness, 
then the glory of the Lord appeared 
in a cloud. ^^And the Lord spoke to 
Moses, saying, ^^I have heard the mur- 
muring of the children of Israel : speak 
to them, saying. Towards evening ye 
shall eat flesh, and in the morning ye 
shall be satisfied with bread, and ye 
shall know that I am the Lord your 
God. ^^And it was evening, and 
quails came up and covered the camp : 
^■^ in the morning it came to pass as the 
dew ceased round about the camp, that 
behold on the face of the wilderness 
was a small thing Hke white coriander 
seed, as frost upon the earth. ^^ And 
when the children of Israel saw it, they 
said one to another, Wliat is this? for 
they knew not what it was ; and Moses 
said to them, ""Tliis is the bread which 
the Lord has given you to eat. This 
is that which the Lord has appointed :

^^^'^' cording to the number of 

your souls, gather each of you with 
liis fellow-lodgers. ^^And the children 
of Israel did so, and gathered some 
much and some less. '**And having 
1 2 Cor. 8. 15. measured the homer jf?<//,^he 
that had gathered much had nothing 
over, and he that had gathered less had 
no lack, each gathered ^according to 
i.e. just suffi- the need of those who be- 
cientfor. longed to him. ^^And 
Moses said to them, Let no man leave 
of it till the morning. ^^ But they did 
not hearken to INIoses, but some left 
of it till the morning, and it bred 
worms and stank, and Moses was irri- 
tated with them. ^' And they gathered 
it every morning, each man what he 
needed, and when the sun waxed hot 
it melted. ^^ And it came to pass on 
the sixth day, they gathered double 
what was needed, two homers for one 
man, and all the chiefs of the syna- 
gogue went in and reported it to Moses. 
^^And Moses said to them. Is not this 
the word which the Lord spoke? To- 
morrow is the sabbath, a holy rest to 
the Lord, bake that ye mil bake, and 
seethe that ye will seethe, and all that 
is over leave to be laid by for the 
morrow? ^^And they left of it till the 
morning, as Moses commanded them, 
and it stank not, neither was there a 
worm in it. ^^And Moses said Eat 
that to-day, for to-day is a sabbath to 
the Lord, it shall not be found in the 
plain. ^'' Six days ye shall gather it, 
and on the seventh day is a sabbath, 
for there shall be none on that day. 
^'And it came to pass on the seventh 
day that some of the people went forth 
to gather and found none. '^**And the 
Lord said to Moses, How long are ye 
unwilling to hearken to my commands 
and my law? '•^^Sec, for the Lord has 
given you this day as the sabbath, 
tlierefore he has given you on the sixth 
day tlie bread of two days, ye shall sit 
each of you in your houses, let no one 



go forth from his place on the seventh 
day. ^°And the people kept sabbath 
on the seventh day. ^' And the chil- 
dren of Israel called the name of it 
]\lan, and it was as white coriander 
seed, and tlie taste of it as a wafer with 
honey. ^^And Moses said, This is the 
thing which the Lord hath commanded, 
Fill an homer with manna, to be laid 
up for your generations, that they may 
see the bread which ye ate in the wil- 
derness, when the Lord led you forth 
out of the land of Egypt. ^^And 
Moses said to Aaron, Take a golden 
pot, and cast into it one full homer of 
manna, and thou shalt lay it up before 
God, to be kept for your generations, 
^''as the Lord commanded ]\Ioscs: and 
Aaron laid it up before the testimony 
to be kept. ^^And the children of 
Israel ate manna forty years, until they 
came to the ^land they ate ^Gr.oiKovixivr). 
the manna, until they came to the 
region of Phoenicia. ^'^ Now the homer 
was the tenth part of three measures. 

17. And all the congregation of the 
children of Israel departed from the 
wilderness of Sin, according to their 
encampments, by the word of the Lord, 
and they encamped in Kaphidin, and 
there was no water for the people to 
drink. ^And the people reviled Moses, 
saying, Give us water, that we may 
drink, and Moses said to them, A\liy 
do ye revile me, and why tempt ye 
the Lord? ^And the people thirsted 
there for water, and there the people 
murmured against Moses, saying. Why 
is this? hast thou brought us up out of 
Egypt to slay us and our children and 
our cattle with thirst? "* And jMoscs 
cried to the Lord, saying. What shall 1 
do to this people ? yet a little while 
and they will stone me. ■''And the 
Lord said to Moses, Go before this 
people, and take to thyself of the elders 
of the people, and the rod with which 
thou smotcst the river, take in thine 
hand, and thou shalt go. ''Behold I

the rock, and water shall come out 
from it, and the people shall drink. 
And Moses did so before the sons of 
Israel. ^And he called the name of 
that place. Temptation, and Reviling, 
because of the rcviHng of the children 
of Israel, and because they tempted 
the Lord, saying, Is the Lord among 
us or not? 

^ And Amalec came and fought with 
Israel in Eaphidin. ^And Moses said 
to Joshua, Choose out for thyself 
mighty men, and go forth and set the 
army in array against Amalec to-mor- 
row, and behold I shall stand on the top 
of the hiU, and the rod of God will be in 
my hand. '"And Joshua did as Moses 
said to him, and he went out and set 
the army in array against Amalec, and 
Moses and Aaron and Or went up to 
the top of the hill. ' ' And it came to 
pass when Moses Kfted up his hands, 
Israel prevailed, and when he let down 
his hands, Amalec prevailed. '^But 
the hands of ]\Ioses were heavy, and 
they took a stone and put it under 
him, and he sat upon it, and Aaron 
and Or supported liis hands one on 
this side and the other on that, and 
the hands of Moses were supported till 
the going down of the sun. '^And 
Joshua routed Amalec and all his peo- 
ple with the slaughter of the sword. 
'''And the Lord said to Moses, Write 
this for a memorial in a book, and 

t(?r. give. ^ speak this in the ears of 
Joshua, for I will utterly blot out the 

+ Gr. the part memorial of Amalec from 

under heaven, i ^^^^^ heaVCU. '^ And 

Moses built an altar to the Lord, and 
called the name of it. The Lord my 
Refuge. '*' For with a secret hand the 
Lord wages war upon Amalec to all 
generations. 

18. And Jothor the priest of Ma- 
diam, the father-in-law of Moses, heard 
of all that the Lord did to his peo- 
ple Israel, for the Lord brought Israel 
out of Egypt. '^And Jothor the father- 



in-law of Moses, took Sepphora the 
wife of Moses after she had been sent 
away, ^and her two sons, the name of 
the one was Gersam, his father saying, 
I was a sojourner in a strange land; — 
^and the name of the second Eliezer, 
saying, For the God of my father is 
my helper, and he has rescued me out 
of the hand of Pharao. ^ And Jothor 
the father-in-law of Moses and his sons 
and his wife went forth to Moses into 
the wilderness, where he encamped on 
the Mount of God. ^ And it was told 
Moses, saying, Behold, thy father-in- 
law Jothor is coming to thee, and thy 
wife and two sons with him. '^And 
Moses went forth to. meet his father-in- 
law, and did him reverence, and kissed 
him, and they embraced each other, 
and he brought them into the tent. 
^And Moses related to his father-in- 
law all things that the Lord did to 
Pharao and all the Egyptians for 
Israel's sake, and all the labour that 
had befallen them in the way, and that 
the Lord had rescued them out of the 
hand of Pharao, and out of the hand 
of the Egyptians. -'And Jothor was 
amazed at all the good things which 
the Lord did to them, forasmuch as 
he rescued them out of the hand of 
the Egyptians and out of the hand of 
Pharao. '°And Jothor said. Blessed 
be the Lord, because he has rescued

]\Ioses hearkened to the voice of his 
father-in-law, and did whatsoever he 
said to him. ^'^And Moses chose 
out able men out of all Israel and 
he made them captains of thousands 
and captains of hundreds, and captains

the people at all times, and every too 
burdensome matter they brought to 
INIoses, but every light matter they 
judged themselves. "And Moses dis- 
missed liis father-in-law, and he re- 
tiu-ned to his own land. 

19. And in the tliird month of the 
departure of the children of Israel out 
of the land of Egypt on the same day, 
they came into the wilderness of Sina. 
^And they departed from Raphidin, 
and came into the wilderness of Sina, 
and there Israel encamped before the 
moimtain. ^And Moses went up to 
the moimt of God, and God called him 
out of the moimtain, saying. These 
things shalt thou say to the house of 
Jacob, and thou shalt report them to 
the children of Israel. ^ Ye have seen 
all that I have done to the Egyptians, 
and I took you up as upon eagles' 
wings, and I brought you near to 
myself. ^ And now if ye will indeed 
hear my voice, and keep my covenant, 
ye shall be to me a peculiar people 
above aU nations, for the whole earth 
is mine. ^And ye shall be to me a 
royal priesthood and a holy nation: 
these words shalt thou speak to the 
children of Israel. ^And ]\Ioses came 
and called the elders of the people, 
and he set before them all these words, 
which God appointed them. *And all 
the people answered with one accord, 
and said. All things that God has spo- 
ken, we wall do and hearken to: and 
]\Ioses reported these words to God. 
^ And the Lord said to Moses, Lo ! I 
come to thee in a pillar of a cloud, 
that the people may hear me speaking 
to thee, and may beheve thee for ever : 
and Moses reported the words of the 
people to the Lord. '"And the Lord 
said to Moses, Go down and solemnly 
charge the people, and sanctify them 
to-day and to-morrow, and let them 
wash their garments. ''And let them 
be ready against the third day, for on 
the third day the Lord will descend

'moimtain to the people and sanctified 
them, and they washed their clothes. 
^^ And he said to the people. Be ready,

gods beside me. ^ Thou shalt not 
make to thyself an idol, nor Hkeness

the heaven above, and whatever are

bestowing mercy on them that love 
me to thousands of them, and on

combined against Aaron, and said to 
him, Arise and make us gods who 
shall go before us, for this Moses, the 
man who brought us forth out of the 
land of Egypt, — we do not know what 
is become of him. ^And Aaron says 
to them. Take off the golden ear-rings 
which are in the ears of your wives 
and daughters, and bring them to me. 
^And all the people took off the 
golden ear-rings that were in their ears, 
and brought them to Aaron. ''And 
he received them at their hands, and 
formed them with a graving tool, and 
he made them a molten calf, and said, 
These are thy gods, Israel, which 
have brought thee up out of the land 
of Egypt. ^ And Aaron having seen it 
built an altar before it, and Aaron made 
proclamation saying. To-morrow is a 
feast of the Lord. ^ And having risen 
early on the morrow he ^ offered whole

people sat down to eat and drink, and 
rose up to play. 

'^And the Lord spoke to Moses, 
saying. Go quickly, descend hence, 
for thy people whom thou broughtest 
out of the land of Egypt have trans- 
gressed, **they have quickly gone out 
of the way which thou commandedst ; 
they have made for themselves a calf, and 
worshipped it, and sacrificed to it, and 
said, ^ These are thy gods, Israel, wlio 
brought thee up out of the land of 
Egypt. '° And now let me alone, and I 
will be very angry with them and con- 
sume them, and I will make thee a great 
nation. ''And Moses prayed before 
the Lord God, and said, AVlierefore, 
Lord, art thou very angry with thy 
people, whom thou broughtest out of 
the land of Egypt with great strength, 
and with thy high arm? '^Take liecd 



lest at any time the Egyptians speak, 
saying, With evil intent he brought 
them out to slay them in the moun- 
tains, and to consume them from off 
the earth; cease from thy wrathful 
anger, and be merciful to the sin of 
thy people, '^remembering Abraam 
and Isaac and Jacob thy servants, to 
whom thou hast sworn by thyself, and 
hast spoken to them, saying, I will

them, so that tliey shall + 6v. propi-

the Lord was ^prevailed upon to 
preserve his people. 

'^ And Moses turned and Avent down 
from the mountain, and the two tables 
of testimony were in his hands, tables 
of stone written on both their sides, 
they were written ■within and "without. 
'^ And the tables were the work of God, 
and the writing the writing of God 
written on the tables. ''^And ^Joshua

which shall go before us, for as for this 
man Moses who brought us out of 
Egypt, we do not know what is ^ become 
t Done to him. of liim. ^^ And I Said to 
them, Kanyone has golden ornaments, 
take them off; and they gave them 
me, and I cast them into the fire, and 
there came out tliis calf. ^^ And when 
Moses saw that the people was scat- 
tered, — for Aaron had scattered them 
so as to be a rejoicing to their enemies, 
— ^^then stood Moses at the gate of 
the camp, and said, Wlio is on the 
Lord's side ? let him come to me. 
Then all the sons of Levi came to him. 
^^And he says to them, thus saith 
the Lord God of Israel, Put every 
one his sword on his thigh, and go 
through and return from gate to gate 
through the camp, and slay every one 
his brother, and every one his neigh- 
bour, and every one him that is near- 
est to him. ^^And the sons of Levi 
did as Moses spoke to them, and there 
fell of the people in that day to the 
number 0/ three thousand men. ^^ And 
Moses said to them, Ye have filled 
your hands this day to the Lord 
each one on his son or on liis bro- 
ther, so that blessino; should be given 
to you. 

^° And it came to pass after the mor- 
row had beffUJi that Moses said to the 
people. Ye have sinned a great sin, and 
now I will go up to God, that I may 
make atonement for your sin. ^' And 
Moses returned to the Lord and said, 
I pray, Lord, this people has sinned a 
great sin, and they have made for them- 
selves golden gods. ^^ And now if thou 
+ <?r. dost. ■^wilt forgive their sin, for- 
give it, and if not, blot me out of thy 
book, which thou hast wi'itten. ^^And 
the Lord said to Closes, If any one has 
sinned against me, I will blot them 
out of my book. ^* And now go, de- 
scend, and lead this people into the 
place of which I spoke to thee, be- 
hold my angel shall go before thy 
face, and in the day when I shall 
visit I mil bring upon them their 



sin. ^''And the Lord smote the peo- 
ple for the making the calf, which 
Aaron made. 

33. And the Lord said to Moses, 
Go forward, go up hence, thou and 
thy people, whom thou broughtest out 
of the land of Egypt, into the land 
which I swore to Abraam, and Isaac, 
and Jacob, saying, I will give it to your 
seed. ^And I will send at the same 
time my angel before thy face, and he 
shall cast out the Amorite and the 
Chettite, and the Pherezite and Ger- 
gesite, and Evite, and Jebusite, and 
Chananite. ^And I will bring thee 
into a land flowing with milk and 
honey, for I will not go up with thee, 
because thou art a stiff-necked people, 
lest I consume thee by the way. ^ And 
the people having heard this ^ grievous 
saying, mourned in mourn- + gc evu. 
ing apparel. ^ For the Lord said to 
the children of Israel, Ye are a stiff- 
necked people, take heed lest I bring- 
on you another plague, and destroy 
you, now then put off your glorious 
apparel, and i/our ornaments, and I 
will show thee what I will do to thee. 
" So the sons of Israel took off their 
ornaments and their array ^at the 
mount of Choreb. ^And ^ Gr. from. 
Moses took his tabernacle and pitched 
it without the camp, at a distance from 
the camp, and it was called the Taber- 
nacle of Testimony, and it came to 
pass that every one that sought the 
Lord went forth to the tabernacle 
which was without the camp. ^And 
whenever IMoses went into the taber- 
nacle without the camp, all the people 
stood every one watching by the doors 
of his tent, and when Moses departed 
they took notice imtil he entered into 
the tabernacle. ^ And when Moses 
entered into the tabernacle, the pillar 
of the cloud descended, and stood at 
the door of the tabernacle, and God 
talked to Moses. ^"And all the people 
saw the pillar of the cloud standing by 
the door of the tabernacle, and all the

people stood and worshipped every

"And the Lord spoke to Moses face to 
face, as if one should speak to his 
friend, and he retired into the camp, 
but his servant Joshua the son of Xaue, 
a young man, departed not forth from 
the tabernacle. 

'^ And Moses said to the Lord, Lo ! 
thou sayest to me. Lead on this people, 
but thou hast not showed me, whom 
thou wilt send with me, but thou hast 
said to me, I know thee above all, and 
thou hast favour with me. ^^ If then 
I have foimd favour in thy sight, reveal 
thyself to me, that I may evidently 
see thee, that I may find favour in thy 
sight, and that I may know that this 
great nation is thy people. ^^And he 
says, I myself will go before thee, and 
give thee rest. ''^ And he says to him, 
If thou go not up with us thyself, bring 
me not up hence. "^And how shall it 
be surely known, that both I and this 
people have found favour with thee, 
except only if thou go with us? So 
both I and thy people shall be glorified 
beyond all the nations, as many as are 
upon the earth. ^^ And. the Lord said 
to JNIoses, I will also do for thee tliis 
thing, which thou hast spoken: for 
thou hast found grace befoi'e me, and I 
know thee above all. '^And Moses 
says. Manifest thyself to me. '^And 
God said, I will pass by before thee 
with my glory, and I will call by my 
name, the Lord before thee, and ^ I

I will have mercy, and will have pity 
on whom I Avill have pity. ^^ And God 
said, Thou shalt not be able to see my 
face, for no man shall see my face, and 
live. '^' And tlie Lord said. Behold 
there is a place by me, thou shalt stand 
upon the rock. ^^And when my glory 
shall pass by, then I will put thee into 
a hole of the rock, and I will cover thee 
over with my hand, until I shall have 
passed by. ^^And I will remove my liand, 
and then shalt tliou see my back })arts, 
but my fiice shall not appear to thee. 



34. And the Lord said to Moses, 
Hew for thyself two tables of stone, as 
also the first were, and come up to me 
to the movmtain, and I will write upon 
the tables the words, which were on 
the first tables, which thovi brokest. 
^And be ready by the morning, and

and shalt stand tliere for me on the 
top of the mountain. ^And let no

and oxen feed near that mountain. 
^ And Moses hewed two tables of stone, 
as also the first were, and Moses having 
arisen early, went up to the Mount 
Sina, as the Lord appointed him, and 
Moses took the two tables of stone. ^And 
the Lord descended in a cloud, and

to do them. '^ Six days shalt thou per-

every wise one among those that 
wrought made the robes of the holy

priest, as the Lord commanded JMoses. 
And ^ he made the ephod of + or, they,

scarlet, and fine linen twined. And 
the plates were divided, the threads 
of gold, so as to interweave with the 
blue and purple, and with the spun scar- 
let, and the fine linen twined, they 
made it a woven work ; shoidder-pieces 
joined from both sides, a work woven 
by mutual twisting of the parts into 
^ one another. They made + ch-. itseif. 
it of the same material according to 
the making of it, of gold, and blue, 
and purple, and spun scarlet, and fine 
linen twined, as the Lord commanded 
Moses; and they made the two eme- 
rald stones clasped together and set in 
gold, graven and cut after the cutting 
of a seal with the names of the children 
of Israel, and he put them on the 
shoulder-pieces of the ephod, as stones 
of memorial of the cliildren of Israel, 
as the Lord appointed Moses. And 
they made the oracle, a work woven 
with embroidery, according to the 
work of the ephod, of gold, and blue, 
and purple, and spun scarlet, and fine 
linen twined. They made the oracle 
square and double, the length of a 
span, and the breadth qf a span, — 
double. And there was interwoven 
with it a woven work of four rows of 
stones, a series of stones, the first row,

pliire and jasper; and the third row, a 
figure and agate and amethyst; and

and fastened with gold. And the 
stones were twelve according to the 
names of the children of Israel, graven 
according to their names ^ like seals, 
each according to his own +Gr. for seals, 
name for the twelve tribes. And they 
made on the oracle turned wreaths, 
wreathen work, of pure gold, and they

made two golden circlets and two 
golden rings. And they put the two 
golden rings, on both the upper corners 
of the oracle, and they put the golden 
wreaths on the rings on both sides ol' 
the oracle, and the two wreaths into 
the two couplings. And they put 
them on the two circlets, and they put 
them on the shoulders of the ephod 
opposite each otJter in front. And 
they made two golden rings, and put 
them on the two projections on the 
top of the oracle, and on the top of 
the hinder part of the ephod within. 
And they made two golden rings, and 
put them on both the shoulders of the 
ephod under it, in front by the coupHng 
above the connexion of the ephod. 
And he fastened the oracle by the 
rings that were on it to the rings of the 
ephod, which were fastened with a 
string of blue, joined together with the 
woven work of the ephod, that the 
oracle should not be loosed from the 
ephod, as the Lord commanded Moses. 
And they made the tunic imder the 
ephod, woven work, all of blue. And 
the opening of the tunic in the midst 
woven closely together, the opening- 
having a fringe round about, that it 
might not be rent. And they made 
on the border of the tunic below pome- 
granates as of a flowering pomegranate

And he made the laver, that ^ at it

did as the Lord commanded Moses, so 
did they. And of the gold that remained 
of the offering they made vessels to 
minister with before the Lord. And 
the blue that was left, and the purple, 
and the scarlet they made into gar- 
ments of ministry for Aaron, so that 
he should minister with them in the 
sanctuary, and they brought the gar- 
ments to Moses, and the tabernacle, 
and its furniture, its bases and its bars 
and the posts ; and the ark of the cove- 
nant, and its bearers, and the altar and 
all its furniture. 

And they made the anointing oil, and

the door of the tabernacle of witness, 
he shall bring it as acceptable before 
the Lord. ^ And he shall lay his hand 
on the head of the burnt-ojBcring as a 
thing acceptable for him, to make 
atonement for him. '^And they shall 
slay the caH' before the Lord, and the 
sons of Aaron the priests shall bring 
the blood, and they shall pour the 
blood round about on the altar, which 
is at the doors of the tabernacle of wit- 
ness. ''And having flayed the whole 
burnt-oficring, they shall divide it by 
its limbs. ''And the sons of Aaron 
the piiests shall put fire on the altar, 
and shall pile wood on the fire. **And 
the sons of Aaron the priests shall pile 
up the divided parts, and the head, and

entrails and the feet they shall wash in 
water, and the priests shall put all on

fice, a smell of sweet savour to the 
Lord. '^And if he bring his gift, a 
burnt-offering to the Lord, of birds, 
then shall he bring his gift of doves or 
pigeons. '^And the priest shall bring 
it to the altar, and shall wring off its 
head, and the priest shall put it on the 
altar, and shall wring out the blood at

sons, and the elders of Israel, ^and Moses 
said to Aaron, Take to thyself a young 
calf of the herd for a sin-offering, and a 
ram for a whole-burnt-offering, unble- 
mished, and offer them before the Lord. 
^ And speak to the elders of Israel, say- 
ing. Take one kid of the goats for a sin- 
ofiering, and a young calf, and a lamb of 
a year old for a whole-burnt-offering, 
spotless, ** and a calf and a ram for a 
peace-offering before the Lord, and fine 
floiu* mingled mth oil, for to-day the 
Lord mil appear among you. '^And 
they took as Mosesrcomnianded them 
before the tabernacle of witness, and all 
the congi-egation drew nigh, and they 
stood before the Lord. ^And Moses 
said. This is the thing which the Lord 
has spoken; do it, and the glory of 
the Lord shall appear among you. 
^ And Moses said to Aaron, Draw nigh 
to the altar, and offer thy sin-offering, 
and thy whole-burnt-offering, and make 
atonement for thyself, and for thy 
house; and offer the gifts of the people, 
and make atonement for them, as the 
Lord commanded Moses. *x\nd Aaron 
drew nigli to the altar, and slew the 
calf of his sin-offering. ^ And the sons 
of Aaron brought the blood to him, 
and he dipped his finger into the 
blood, and put it on the horns of the 
altar, and he poured out the blood at 
the bottom of the altar. '°And he 
offered up on the altar the fat and the 
kidneys and the lobe of the liver of 
the sin-offering, according as the Lord 



commanded Moses. "And the flesli 
and the hide he burnt with fire out- 
side of the camp. ^"^And he slew the 
whole-burnt- offering ; and the sons of 
Aaron brought the blood to him, and 
he poured it on the altar round about. 
••*And they brought the whole-burnt- 
offering according to its pieces, them 
and the head he put upon the altar. 
"And he washed the belly and the 
feet with water, and he put them on 
the whole-burnt-ofi^ering on the altar. 
'^And he brought the gift of the 
people, and took the goat of the sin- 
offering of the people, and slew it and 
purified it as also the first. '''And 
he brought the whole-burnt-offering, 
and offered it ^in due form. tGc.asisproper. 
'^And he brought the sacrifice and 
filled his hands with it, and laid it on 
the altar besides the morning whole- 
burnt-offering. '^And he slew the 
calf, and the ram of the sacrifice of 
peace-offering of the people, and the 
sons of Aaron brought the blood to 
him, and he poured it out on the altar 
round about. '^ And he took the fat of 
the calf, and the ^hind +ff'-.ioms. 
quarters of the ram, and the fat cover- 
ing the belly, and the two kidneys, 
and the fat upon them, and the caul 
on the fiver. ^"And he put the fat 
on the breasts, and offered the fat on 
the altar. ^' And Aaron separated the 
breast and the right shoulder as a 
choice-offering before the Lord, as the 
Lord commanded Moses. ^^And Aaron 
lifted up his hands on the people and 
blessed them, and after he had offered 
the sin-offering, and the whole-burnt- 
offerings, and the peace-offerings, he 
cam€ down. ^^And Moses and Aaron 
entered into the tabernacle of witness. 
And they came out and blessed all the 
people, and the glory of the Lord 
appeared to all the people. ^''And 
fire came forth from the Lord, and 
devoured the offerings on the altar, both 
the whole-biu-nt-offerings and the fat, 
and all the people saw, and were 
amazed, and fell upon their faces.

^ And Moses said to Aaron, This is the

Aaron was pricked m his heart. ^ And 
Moses called ]\lisadae, and EHsaphan,

Aaron's father, and said to them. Draw 
near and take your brethren from before

them in their coats out of the camp,

'•"And ]\Ioscs dihgently sought the 
goat of the sin-offering, but it had 
been consumed by fire ; and Moses was 
angry with Eleazar and Ithamar the 
sons of Aaron that were left, saying, 
'^ Wliy did ye not eat the sin-oflcring

that ye might take away the sin of the

sanctified it should redeem his house, 
he shall add to it the fifth part of the

plague were fourteen thousand and 
seven hundred, besides those that died 
on account of Core. ''"''' And Aaron re- 
tm-ned to Moses to the door of the taber- 
nacle of witness, and the plague ceased. 

17. And the Lord spoke to Moses, 
saying, ^ Speak to the children of Israel, 
+Gr. a rod. and take ^rods of them, ac- 
cording to the houses of their families, 
a rod from all their princes, according 
to the houses of their families, twelve 
rods, and write the name of each on 
his rod. ^ And write the name of 
Aaron on the rod of Levi ; for it is one 
rod for each, they shall give them ac- 
cording to the tribe of the house of 
their families. * And thou shalt put 
them in the tabernacle of witn(!ss, 
before the testimony, where I will be 
made known unto thee. •'"'And it shall 
be, the man whom I shall choose, his rod 
shall blossom ; and I will remove from 
me the murmuring of the children of 
Israel, which they murmur against you. 

^And JNIoses spoke to the children of 
Israel, and all their chiefs gave him a 
rod each, for one chief a rod, according 
to the house of their families, twelve 
rods; and the rod of Aaron was in the 
midst of the rods. ''And Moses laid 

164 



up the rods before the Lord in the 
ta])crnacle of witness. * And it came 
to pass on the morrow, that ]\Ioses and 
iVaron went into the tabernacle of wit- 
ness, and, behold, the rod of Aaron 
for the house of Levi blossomed, and 
put forth a bud, and bloomed blossoms 
and produced almonds. ^And Moses 
brought I'orth all the rods from before 
the Lord to all the sons of Israel; and 
they looked, and each one took his rod. 
'"And the Lord said to Moses, Lay 
up the rod of Aaron before the testi- 
monies to be kept as a sign for the 
children of the disobedient ; and let 
their murmuring cease from me, and 
they shall not die. "And JNloses and 
Aaron did as the Lord commanded 
Moses, so did they. '^And the chil- 
dren of Israel spoke to IMoses, saying, 
Behold we are cut off, we are destroyed, 
we are consumed. '^ Every one that 
touches the tabernacle of the Lord, 
dies : shall we die utterly ? 

18. And the Lord spoke to Aaron, 
saying, Thou and thy sons and thy 
father's house shall bear the sins of the 
holy things, and thou and thy sons 
shall bear the iniquity of your priest- 
hood. ■' And take to thyself thy bre- 
thren the tribe of Levi, the ihmily of thy 
father, and let them be joined to thee, 
and let them minister to thee: and 
thou and thy sons with thee shall 
minister before the tabernacle of wit- 
ness. ^And they shall keep thy charges,

they shall not approach the holy vessels

shall not die. ''And they shall be 
joined to thee, and shall keep the 
charges of the tabernacle of witness, in

saying, '-*' Thou shalt also speak to the 
Levites, and shalt say to them, If

them for an inheritance, then shall ye 
separate from it a heave-oiJering to the 
Lord, a tenth of the tenth. ^^ And 
your heave-ollerings shall be reckoned 
to you as corn from the floor, and an

shall ye also separate them from all the

19. And the Lord spoke to Moses 
and Aaron, saying, ^ This is the con- 
stitution of the law, as the Lord has 
commanded, saying. Speak to the sons 
of Israel, and let them take for thee a 
red heifer mthout spot, Avhich has no

before liim ; and Ikm- skin and her flesh 



and her blood, with her dvmg, shall be

cedar wood and hyssop and scarlet 
wool, and they shall cast them into

^And the priest shall wash his garments, 
and bathe liis body in water, and after- 
wards he shall go into the camp, and 
the priest shall be unclean till evening. 
*'And he that burns her shall wash his 
garments, and bathe his body, and 
shall be unclean till evening. ^And a 
clean man shall gather iip the ashes of 
the heifer, and lay them up in a clean 
place outside the camp : and they shall 
be for the congregation of the children 
of Israel to keep: it is the water of 
sprinkling, a purification. '"And he 
that gathers up the ashes of the heifer

unclean until evening : and it shall be 
a perpetual statute for the children of 
Israel and for the strangers joined to

'^ He shall be purified on the third

he should have died, and the other not

man, or the corpse, or the tomb. '^And 
the clean man shall sprinkle the tvater 
on the unclean on the third day and

day he shall purify himself, and the 
other shall wash his garments, and bathe 
himself in water, and shall be imclean

20. And the children of Israel, even 
the whole congregation, came into the 
wilderness of Sin, in the first month, 
and the people abode in Kades; and 
IVIariam died there, and was bmied 
there. ^And there was no water for 
the congregation: and they gathered 
themselves together against Moses and 
Aaron. ^ And the people reviled Mo- 
ses, saying. Would we had died in the 
destruction of our brethren before 
the Lord ! "* And wherefore have ye 
brought up the congregation, of the 
Lord into this wilderness, to kill us 
and our cattle? ^And wherefore is 
this? Ye have brought us up out of 
Egypt, that we should come into this 
evil place; a place where there is no 
sowing, neither figs, nor vines, nor 
pomegranates, neither is there water 
to drink. ^And ]\Ioses and Aaron went 



from before the assembly to the door 
of the tabernacle of witness, and they 
fell upon their faces ; and the glory of 
the Lord appeared to them. ''And the 
Lord spoke to Moses, saying, ^ Take 
thy rod, and call the assembly, thou 
and Aaron thy brother, and speak ye 
to the rock before them, and it shall 
give forth its waters, and ye shall 
bring forth for them water out of the 
rock, and give drink to the congrega- 
tion and their cattle. ^And Moses 
took his rod which was before the 
Lord, as the Lord commanded. ^°And 
Moses and Aaron assembled the con- 
gregation before the rock, and said to 
them. Hear me, ye disobedient ones, 
must we bring you water out of this 
rock? ^^And Moses lifted up his hand 
and struck the rock with his rod twice ; 
and much water came forth, and the 
congregation drank, and their cattle. 
'^And the Lord said to Moses and 
Aaron, Because ye have not believed 
me to sanctify me before the children 
of Israel, therefore ye shall not bring 
this congregation into the land which 
I have given them. ^^ This is the 
water of Strife, because the childi-en 
of Israel spoke insolently before the 
Lord, and he was sanctified in them. 

'''And Moses sent messengers from 
Kades to the king of Edom, saying, 
Thus says thy brother Israel; Thou 
knowest all the distress that has ^ come 
upon us. '^And how our tcr. found, 
fathers went down into Egypt, and 
we sojourned in Egypt many days, 
and the Egyptians afflicted us and our 
fathers. ''^And we cried to the Lord, 
and the Lord heard our voice, and 
sent an angel and brought us out of 
Egypt : and now we are in the city of 
Kades, at the extremity of thy coasts. 
'^We will pass through thy land: we 
will not go through the fields, nor 
through the vineyards, nor will we 
drink water out of thy cistern, we 
will go by the king's highway: we 
will not turn aside to the right hand 
or to the left, until we have passed thy

borders. '**And Edom said to him, 
Thou shalt not pass through me, and 
it" other\vise, I will go forth to meet 
thee in war. '^vVnd the children of 
Israel say to him, We will pass by 
the mountain ; and if 1 and my cattle 
drink of thy water 1 will pay thee : but 
it is no matter of importance, wc will 
go by the moimtain. '^"And he said, 
Thou shalt not pass through me : and 
Edom went forth to meet- him with a 
great host, and a mighty hand. -' So 
Edom refused to allow Israel to pass 
through his borders, and Israel turned 
away irom liim. '^^ And they departed 
from Kades; and the children ol" Israel, 
even the whole congregation, came to 
Mount Or. 

^^ And the Lord spoke to Moses and 
Aaron in IMount Or, on the borders of 
the land of Edom, saying, ^'^ Let Aaron 
be added to his people, for ye shall 
certainly not go into the land which 1 
have given the children of Israel, 
because ye provoked me at the water 
of Strife. ^■'' Take Aaron, and Eleazar 
his son, and bring them up to the 
Mount Or before all the congregation ; 
"■^•'and take Aaron's apparel from olF 
him, and put it on Eleazar his son: 
and let Aaron die there and be added 
to his people. '" And Moses did as the 
Lord commanded him, and took him 
up to ]\Iount Or, before all the con- 
gregation. '■^'^ And he took Aaron's 
garments off him, and put them on 
Eleazar liis son, and Aaron died on 
the top of the mountain; and Moses 
and Eleazar came down from the 
mountain. ^^And all the congregation 
saw that Aaron was dead, and they 
wept for Aaron thirty days, even all 
the house of Israel. 

21. And Arad the Chananitish king 

who dwelt by the wilderness heard 

that Israel came by the way of Atharin, 

and he made war on Israel, and car-

wilt deliver this people into my power, 
I will devote it and its cities to thee. 
^ And the Lord hearkened to the voice 
of Israel, and delivered the Chananite 
into his power; and Israel devoted 
hiin and liis cities, and they called 
the name of that place ^ Ana- t or. devoted 
thenxa. "And having de- ***"'^- 
parted from Mount Or by the way 
leadiiKj to the lied Sea, they compassed 
the land of Edom, and the people lost 
courage by the way. ■''And the people 
spoke against God and against Moses, 
saying, AVliy is this? Hast thou 
brought us out of Egypt to slay us 
in the wilderness? for there is not 
bread nor water; and our soul loathes 
this light bread. ^And the Lord sent 
among the people deadly serpents, 
and they bit the people, and much 
people of the children of Israel died. 
^And the people came to Moses and 
said, We have sinned, for we have 
spoken against the Lord, and against 
thee; pray, therefore to the Lord, and 
let him take away the serpent from us. 
^And Moses prayed to the Lord for the 
people, and the Lord said to ]\Ioses, 
IVIakc thee a serpent, and put it on a 
signal-.f^a^, and it shall come to pass 
that whenever a serpent shall bite a 
man, every one so bitten that looks 
upon it shall live. '' And Moses made 
a serpent of brass, and put it upon a 
signal-.v^j^; and it came to pass that 
Avhenever a serpent bit a man, and he 
looked on the brazen serpent, he 
lived. 

'"vXnd the children of Israel de- 
parted, and encamped in Oboth. ' 'And 
having departed from Oboth, they en- 
camped in Achalgai, on the fiirther 
side in the Avilderness, which is oppo- 
site ]\Ioab, toward the east. ''^ And 
thence they departed, and encamped

Seon king of the Amorites, with peace- 
able words, saying, '^'We will pass 
through thy land, we will go by the 
road; we Avill not turn aside to the 
field or to the vineyard. ^^ We will not 
drink water out of thy well; we will 
go by the king's highway, until we 
have past thy boundaries. '^^ Aiid Seon 
did not allow Israel to pass through 
his borders, and Seon gathered all his 
people, and went out to set the battle 
in array against Israel into the wilder- 
ness ; and he came to Jassa, and set the 
battle in array against Israel. '^^ And 
Israel smote him with the slaughter of 
the sword and they became possessors 
of his land, from Arnon to Jabok, 
as far as the children of Amman, lor 
Jazer is the borders of the children of

cities, and Israel dwelt in all the cities 
of the Amorites, in Esebon, and in all 
cities belonging to it. ^''For Esebon 
is the city of Seon king of the Amo- 
rites ; and he before fought against the 
king of Moab, and they took all his 
land, from Aroer to Arnon. ^^ There- 



fore say they who deal in dark speeches, 
Come to Esebon, that the city of Seon 
may be built and prepared. ^^For a 
fire has gone forth from Esebon, a 
llame from the city of Seon, and has 
consumed as far as Moab, and devoured 
the pillars of Arnon. ^-'Woe to thee, 
Moab, thou art lost, thou people of 
Chamos : their sons are sold for preser- 
vation, and their daughters are cap-

^'^And their seed shall perish from 
Esebon unto Da^bon ; and their women 
have yet farther kindled a fire against 
Moab. ^^ And Israel dwelt in all 
the cities of the Amorites. ^'^And 
]\Ioses sent to spy out Jazer ; and they 
took it, and its villages, and cast out 
the Amorite that dwelt there. ^^And 
having returned, they went up the 
road that leads to Basan ; and Og the 
king of Basan Avent forth to meet them, 
and all his people to war to Edrain. 
^''And the Lord said to Moses, Fear 
him not, for I have delivered him and 
all his people, and all his land, into 
thy hands, and thou shalt do to him as 
thou didst to Seon king of the Amo- 
rites, who dwelt in Esebon. ^^ And he 
smote him and his sons, and all his 
people, until he left none of his to be 
taken ahve, and they inherited his 
land. 

22. And the children ^f Israel de- 
parted, and encamped on the west of 
Moab by Jordan toward Jericho. '-^And 
when Balac son of Zepphor saw all

Moab feared the people exceedingly

Lord. ■' And the Lord spoke to Moses, 
saying, *' The daughters of Salpaad 
have spoken rightly : thou shalt surely 
give them a possession of inheritance 
in the midst of their father's brethren, 
and thou shalt assign their father's in- 
heritance to them. ^And thou shalt 
speak to the children of Israel, saying, 
**If a man die, and have no son, ye shall 
assign his inheritance to liis daughter. 
^ And if he have no daughter, ye shall 
give his inheritance to his brother. 
'"And if he have no brethren, ye shall 
give his inheritance to his father's 
brother. "And if there be no brethren 
of his father, ye shall give the inherit- 
ance to his nearest relation of his tribe, 
to inherit his possessitms ; and this shall 
be to the children of Israel an ordi- 
nance of judgment, as the Lord com- 
manded Moses. 

'^And the Lord said to Moses, Go 
up to the mountain that is in the coun- 
try beyond Jordan, this Moimt Nabau, 
and behold the land Chanaan, which 
I give to the sons of Israel for a pos- 
session. '^And thou shalt see it, and 
thou also shalt be addcid to thy people, 
as Aaron thy brother was added to 
them in Mount Or. ^^ Because ye trans- 
gressed my commandment in the wil- 
clerncss of Sin, when the congregation 
resisted a?ul refused to sanctify me, ye 
sanctified me not at the water before 
them : this is the water of Strife in 
Kades in the wilderness of Sin. '^And 
Moses said to the Lord, "^ Let the Lord 
God of spirits and of all flesh look out 
for a man over this congregation, '^who 
shall go out before them, tnid who shall 
come in before them, and who shall 
lead them out, and who shall bring 
them in, so the congregation of the 
Lord shall not be as sheep without a 
shepherd. "*And the Lord spoke to 
Moses, saying. Take to thyself Joshua 
the son of Kaue, a man who has the 
spirit in him, and thou shalt lav thy 
hands upon him. '-'And thou shalt set

us, he and all his people to war at

livered him before our face, and we 
smote him, and his sons, and all his

destroyed every city in succession, and 
their wives, and their children ; we left 
no living prey. ^^ Only we took the 
cattle captive, and took the spoil of 
the cities. ^^ From Aroer, which is 
by the brink of the brook of Arnon,

way leading to Basan: and Og the 
king of Basan came out to meet us, he 
and all his people to battle at Edraim. 
'^And the Lord said to me. Fear him 
not, ibr 1 have dehvered him, and all 
his people, and all his land, into thy

thou didst to Seon king of the Amo-

Lord our God delivered him into our 
hands, even Og the king of Basan, and 
all his people ; and we smote liim until 
we left none of his seed. '*And we 
mastered all his cities at that time; 
there was not a city which we took not 
from them ; sixty cities, all the coimtry 
round about Argob, belonging to king 
Og in Basan. ^ All strong cities, lofty 
w^alls, gates and bars; besides the very 
many cities of the Pherezites. ^We 
utterly destroyed them as we dealt with 
Seon the king of Esebon, so we utterly 
destroyed every city in order, and the 
women and the children, ^ and all the 
cattle; and we took for a prey to our- 
selves the spoil of the cities. ^ And we 
took at that time the land out of the

Aermon Sanior, but the Amorite has 
called it Sanir. ^"All the cities of

Araba and Jordan are the boundary 
of ]\Iachanareth, even unto the ^ea of

the Lord our God gives them on the

which I have given you. 

^' And I commanded Joshua at that 
time, sayuag, Your eyes have seen all

to these two kings; so shall the Lord 
our God do to all the kingdoms

besought the Lord at that time, say-

thy power, and thy mighty hand, and 
thy high arm : for what God is there in 
heaven or on the earth, who will do as 
thou hast done, and according to thy 
might ? ^^ I will therefore go over and 
see this good land that is beyond Jor- 
dan, this good mountain and Antili- 
banus. -''And the Lord because of 
you did not regard me, and hearkened 
not to me : and the Lord said to me. 
Let it suffice thee, speak not of this 
matter to me any more. ^^ Go up to the 
top of the ^ quarried rock, + i- e. pisgah.

house of Phogor.

29. These are the words of the 
covenant, which the Lord commanded 
Moses to make with the children of 
Israel in the land of Moab, besides the 
covenant which he made with them 
in Choreb. ^ And Moses called all the 
sons of Israel and said to them. Ye 
have seen all things that the Lord did 
in the land of Egypt before you to 
Pharao and his servants, and all his 
land ; ^ the great temptations which 
thine eyes have seen, the signs., and 
those great wonders. ^Yet the Lord 
God has not given you a heart to 
know, and eyes to see, and ears to hear, 
until this day. ^ And he led you forty 
years in the wilderness ; your garments 
did not grow old, and your sandals 
were not worn away off your feet. 
^Ye did not eat bread, ye did not 
drink wine or strong drink, that ye 
might know that I am the Lord your 
God. ^And ye came as far as this 
place ; and there came forth Seon king 
of Esebon, and Og king of Basan, to 
meet us in war. * And we smote them 
and took their land, and I gave it for 
an inheritance to Euben and Gad, and 
to the half tribe of Manasse. ^ And ye 
shall take heed to do all the words of 
this covenant, that ye may understand 
all things that ye shall do. ^^ Ye all 
stand to-day before the Lord your God, 
the heads of your tribes, and your 
elders, and your judges, and your 
officers, every man of Israel, •'your 
wives, and your children, and the 
stranger who is in the midst of your 
camp, from your hewer of wood even 
to your drawer of water, that '^thou 
shouldest enter into the covenant of 
the Lord thy God and into his oaths,

as many as the Lord thy God appoints 
thee this day. '^ That he may appoint 
thee to himself for a people, and he 
shall be thy God, as he said to thee, and 
as he swore to thy fathers, Abraam, 
and Isaac, and Jacob. '''And I do not 
appoint to you alone this covenant and 
this oath; '^but to those also who are 
here with you to-day before the Lord 
your God, and to those who are not 
here with you to-day. "^ For ye know 
how we dwelt in the land of Egypt, 
how we came through the midst of the 
nations through whom ye came. '^And 
ye beheld their abominations, and their 
idols, wood and stone, silver and gold, 
which are among them. '^Lest there 
be among you man, or woman, or fa-

the Lord shall blot out his name from

in the book of this law. ^^ And another

his wrath and anger : — ^* and all the 
nations shall say, Wliy has the Lord 
done thus to this land: Wliat is this 
great fierceness of anger ? ^^And men 
shall say. Because they forsook the 
covenant of the Lord God of their 
fathers, the things which he appointed 
to their fathers, when he brought them 
out of the land of Egypt: ^^and they 
went and served other gods, which 
they knew not, neither did he assign 
them to them. ^^And the Lord was 
exceedingly angry with that land to 
bring upon it according to all the curses 
which are written in tlie book of this 
law. ^^And the Lord removed them 
from their land in anger, and wrath, 
and very great indignation, and cast 
them out into another land as at pre- 
sent. ^^The secret things belong to 
the Lord our God, but the things that 
are revealed belong to us and to our 
children for ever, that we may do all 
the words of this law.

thy life, and the length of thy days, 
that thou shouldest dwell upon the 
land, which the Lord swore to thy 
fathers, Abraam, and Isaac, and Jacob, 
to give to them. 

31. And Moses finished speaking all 
these words to all the children of Israel; 
^ and said to them, I am this day a 
hundred and twenty years old ; I shall 
not be able any longer to come in or 
go out; and the Lord said to me. Thou 
shalt not go over this Jordan. ^ The 
Lord thy God who goes before thee, 
he shall destroy these nations before 
thee, and thou shalt inherit them : and 
it shall be Joshua that goes before thy 
face, as the Lord has spoken. '* And 
the Lord thy God shall do to them as 
he did to Seon and Og the two kings 
of the Amorites, who were beyond 
Jordan, and to their land, as he de- 
stroyed them. ^And the Lord has 

+ i. e. the na- delivered ^ them to you ; and 
"°"^- ye shall do to them, as I 

charged you. ^ Be courageous and 
strong, fear not, neither be cowardly, 
neither be afraid before them ; for it is 
the Lord your God that advances with 

tHeb. 13. 5. you in the midst of you, 
^ neither will he by any means forsake 
thee, nor desert thee. ^And Moses 
called Joshua, and said to him 
before all Israel, Be courageous and 
strong, for thou shalt go in before this 
people into the land which the Lord 
swore to your fathers to give to them, 
and thou shalt give it to them for an 



inheritance. ^ And the Lord that goes 
with thee shall not forsake thee nor 
abandon thee; fear not, neither be 
afraid. ''And Moses wrote the words 
of this law in a book, and gave it to 
the priests the sons of Levi who bear 
the ark of the covenant of the Lord, 
and to the elders of the sons of Israel. 
'''And Moses charged them in that 
day, saying. After seven years, in the 
time of the year of release, in the feast 
of Tabernacles, ''when all Israel come 
together to appear before the Lord 
your God, in the place which the 
Lord shall choose, ye shall read this 
law before all Israel in their ears, '^hav- 
ing assembled the people, the men, 
and the women, and the cliildren, and 
the stranger that is in your cities, that 
they may hear, and that they may 
learn to fear the Lord your God ; and 
they shall hearken to do all the words 
of this law. '^And their sons who 
have not known shall hear, and shall 
learn to fear the Lord thy God all the 
days that they live upon the land, into 
which ye go over Jordan to inherit it. 
'■* And the Lord said to Moses, Behold, 
the days of thy death are at hand ; call 
Joshua, and stand ye by the doors of 
the tabernacle of testimony, and I will 
give liim a charge. And Moses and 
Joshua went to the tabernacle of testi- 
mony, and stood by the doors of the 
tabernacle of testimony. "'^And the 
Lord descended in a cloud, and stood 
by the doors of the tabernacle of 
testimony ; and the pillar of the cloud 
stood by the doors of the tabernacle 
of testimony. '^ And the Lord said to 
Moses, Behold, thou shalt sleep with 
thy fathers, and this people vshall arise 
and go a whoring after the strange 
gods of the land, into which they are 
entering, and they shall forsake me, 
and break my covenant, which I made 
with them. '^And I will be very 
angry with them in that day, and I 
will leave them and turn my face away 
from them, and they shall be devoured; 
and many evils and afflictions shall

come upon them ; and they shall say in 
that day, Because the Lord my God 
is not with me, these e\als have come 
upon me. '^And I will surely turn 
away my face from them in that day, 
because of all their evil doings which 
they have done, because they turned 
aside after strano'c gods. *'■' And now 
write the Avords of this song, and teach 
it to the children of Israel, and ye 
shall put it into their mouth, that tliis 
song may witness for me among the 
children of Israel to their face. '" For 
I will bring them into the good land, 
which I swore to their fathers, to give 
to them a land flowing with milk and 
honey : and they shall eat and be filled 
and satisfy themselves ; then will they 
turn aside after other gods, and serve 
them, and they will provoke me, and 
break my covenant. ^' And this song 
shall stand up to witness against them ; 
for they shall not forget it out of their 
mouth, or out of the mouth of their 
seed; for I know their Avickedness, 
what they are doing here this day, 
before 1 have brought them into the 
good land, which I swore to their 
fathers. ^^ And Moses wrote this song 
in that day, and taught it to the chil- 
dren of Israel. ^^And he charged 
Joshua, and said. Be courageous and 
strong, for thou shalt bring the sons of 
Israel into the land, which the Lord 
swore to them, and he shall be with 
thee. 

"■*And when Moses finished writing 
all the Avords of this law in a book, 
even to the end, '■^■''then he charged the 
Levites Avho bear the ark of the cove- 
nant of the Lord, saying, ^^ Take the 
book of this laAV, and ye shall put it in

the earth hear the Avords out of my 
mouth. ^ Let my speech be looked for

'•''And Moses wrote this song in that 
day, and taught it to the children of 
Israel; and Moses went in and spoke 
all the words of" this law in the ears of 
the people, he and Joshua the son of 
Naue. ^•''And Moses finished speaking 
to all Israel. ^"And he said to them, 
Take heed with your heart to all these

you; for it is your Hfe, and because of 
this word ye shall live long upon the 
land, into Avhich ye go over Jordan to

Moses in this day, saying, ''^Go up to

sons of Israel: '"'^and die in the mount

whosoever shall disobey thee, and who-

2. And Joshua the son of Naue 
sent out of Sattin two young men to 
spy the land, saying, Go up and view 
the land and Jericho : and the two 
young men went and entered into 
Jericho ; and they entered into the 
house of a harlot, whose name was 
Eaab, and lodged there. ^And it 
was reported to the king of Jericho, 
saying. Men of the sons of Israel have 
come in hither to spy the land. ^And 
the king of Jericho sent and spoke to 
Raab, saying. Bring out the men that 
entered into thine house this night; 
for they are come to spy out the land. 
■'And the woman took the two men 
and hid them ; and she spoke to ^ the 

+ Gr. them, messcngcrs, sa3dng, The men 
came into me, ^but when the gate was

men went out; I know not wliithcr 
they are gone : follow after them, if yc 

tGr. shau. ^ may Overtake them. ^But 
she had brought them up upon the 
house, and hid them in the flax- 
stalks — that were spread by her on the 
house. ^And the men followed after 
them in the way to Jordan to the 
fords; and the gate was shut. "And 
it came to pass when the men who 
pursued after them were gone forth, 
and before the spies had lain down to 
sleep, that she came up to them on the 
top of the house ; ^and she said to 
them, I know that the Lord has given 
you the land; for the fear of you has 
fallen upon us. ^"For wc have heard 
that the Lord God dried up the Red 
Sea before you, when ye came out of 
the land of Egypt, and all that he did 
to the two kings of the Amorites, who 
were beyond Jordan, to Seon and Og, 
whom ye utterly destroyed. " And 



when we heard it we were amazed in 
our heart, and there was no longer any 
spirit in any of us because of you, for 
the Lord your God is God in heaven 
above, and on the earth beneath. '^And 
now swear to me by the Lord God; 
since I deal mercifully with you, so do 
ye also deal mercifully with the house 
of my father: '^and save ahve the 
house of my father, my mother, and 
my brethren, and all my house, and all 
that they have, and ye shall rescue my 
soul from death. '''And the men said 
to her. Our hfe for yours even to death : 
and she said. When the Lord shall 
have delivered the city to you, ye shall 
deal mercifully and truly with me. 
'^ And she let them down by the win- 
dow; '''and she said to them. Depart 
into the hill-coimtry, lest the pursuers 
meet you, and ye shall be hidden there 
three days until your pursuers return 
from after you, and afterwards ye shall 
depart on your way. '^And the men 
said to her. We are clear of tliis thy 
oath. '"Behold, we ^ shall + Cf. do enter, 
enter into a part of the city, and thou 
shalt set ^a sign, thou shalt + Gr. the sigm.

that whosoever shall go outside the 
door of thy house, his guilt shall be 
upon him, and we shall be quit of this 
thine oath ; and we will be respon- 
sible for all that shall be found with 
thee in thy house. ^°But if any one 
sliould injure us, or betray these our 
matters, we shall be quit of this thine 
oath. ^' And she said to tliem. Let it 
be according to your word: and she 
sent them out and they departed. 
^^And they came to the hill-country, 
and remained there three days; and 
the pursuers searched all the roads, and 
found them not. 

'■^^ And tlie two young men returned, 
and came down out of the mountain;

Chap. iv. v. 4. 



and they went over to Joshua the son of 
Naue, and told him all things that had 
happened to them. ^* And they said to 
Joshua, The Lord has delivered all the 
land into our power, and all the inhabit- 
ants of that land tremble because of us. 

3. And Joshua rose up early in the 
morning, and departed from Sattin, 
and they came as far as Jordan, and 
lodged there before they crossed over. 
'^And it came to pass after three days, 
that the scribes went through the camp ; 
^ and tliey charged the people, sajdng, 
When ye shall see the ark of the cove- 
nant of the Lord our God, and our 
priests and the Levites bearing it, ye 
shall depart from your places, and ye 
shall go after it. '' But let there be a 
distance between you and it; ye shall 
stand as much as two thousand cubits 
from it. Do not draw nigh to it, that 
ye may know the way which ye are to 
go; for ye have not gone the way 
+ Gr. from ^ before. ^ And Joshua said 
thl*thirYdT^ to the people, Sanctify your- 
A frequent sclvcs agaiust to-morrow, for 

Hebraism. , j.1 T 1 *n 1 

to-morrow the Lord will do 
wonders among you. ^And Joshua 
said to the priests, Take up the ark of 
the covenant of the Lord, and go be- 
fore the people: and the priests took 
up the ark of the covenant of the Lord, 
and went before the people. ^And 
the Lord said to Joshua, This day do 
I begin to exalt thee before all the 
children of Israel, that they may know 
that as I was with Moses, so will I also 
be with thee. ^And now charge the 
priests that bear the ark of tlic cove- 
nant, saying, As soon as ye shall enter 
on a part of the water of Jordan, 
then ye shall stand in Jordan. 

^ And Joshua said to the children of

hither, .sc. hearken to the word of the

shall know that the living God is among 
you, and will utterly destroy from 
before our face the Chananite, and the 
Chettite and Pherezite, and the Evite, 



and the Amorite, and the Gergesite, 
and the Jebusite. " Behold the ark 
of the covenant of the Lord of all the 
earth passes over Jordan. '^ Choose 
for yom'selves twelve men of the sons 
of Israel, one of each tribe. ^^ And it 
shall come to pass, when the feet of 
the priests that bear the ark of the 
covenant of the Lord of the whole 
earth rest in the water of Jordan, the 
water of Jordan belotv shall fail, and 
the water coming down from above 
shall stop. '''And the people removed 
from their tents to cross over Jordan, 
and the priests bore the ark of the 
covenant of the Lord before the peo- 
ple. '''And when the priests that bore 
the ark of the covenant of the Lord 
entered upon Jordan, and the feet of

Red Sea, which the Lord our God 
dried up from before us, until we 
passed over. -■* That all the nations of 
the earth might know, that the power 
of the Lord is mighty, and that ye 
might worship the Lord our God in 
every work. 

5. And it came to pass when the 
kings of the Amorites who were be- 
yond Jordan heard, and the kings of 
Rhfpnicia by the sea, that the Lord 
God had dried up the river Jordan 
from beibre tlie children ol" Israel when 
they passed over, that their hearts 
failed, and they were ^terror-stricken, 
and there was no sense in + ^^ ^^^^ 
them ^because of the chil- or thoughts 
dren of Israel. ^ And about t ov. from the 
this time the Lord said to '■'^""^- '^?°

cise the children of Israel the second 
time. ^ And Joshua made sharp 
knives of stone, and circumcised the 
children of Israel at the place called 
the " Hill of Foreskins." ''And this is 
the way in which Joshua purified the 
children of Israel; as many as were 
born in the way, and as many as were 
uncircumcised of them that came out 
of Egypt, ^all these Joshua circum- 
cised ; for for forty and two years 
Israel wandered in the wilderness of 
Mabdaris — ''Wherefore most of the 
fighting men that came out of the land 
of Egypt, were uncircumcised, who 
disobeyed the commands of God, con- 
cerning whom also he determined that 
they should not see the land, which the 
Lord swore to give to their fathers 
even a land flowing with milk and 
honey. ^ And in their place he raised 
up their sons, whom Joshua circum- 
cised, because they were uncircumcised, 
having been born by the way. *^And 
when they had been circumcised they

the son of Naue, On this day have I 
removed the I'cproach of Egypt from 
you: and he called the name of that 
place Galgala. 

'"And the children of Israel kept 
the passover on the fourteenth day of 
the month at evening, to the westward 
of Jciicho on the opposite side of the 
Jordan in the plain. ''And they ate 
of the grain of the earth unleavened 
and new corn. ''^ In this day the manna 
failed, after they had eaten of the corn 
of the land, and the children of Israel 
no longer had manna; and they took 
the fruits of the land of the Phoeni- 
cians in that year. '^And it came to 
pass when Joshua was in Jericho, that

he said to him, I am now come, the 
chief captain of the host of the Lord. 
'^ And Joshua fell on his face upon the 
earth, and said to him. Lord, what 
commandest thou thy servant ? "" And 
the captain of the Lord's host said to 
Joshua, Loose thy shoe off thy feet, for 
the place whereon thou now standest is 
holy. 

6. Now Jericho was closely shut up 
and besieged, and none went out of it, 
and none came in. ^And the Lord 
said to Joshua, Behold, I dehver Jeri- 
cho into thy power, and its king in it, 
'and its mighty men. =^And +&.. mighty

have shouted the walls of own accord, 
the city shall fall ^ of themselves, and all 
the people shall enter, each one rush-

'' And Joshua the son of Naue went 
in to the priests, and spoke to them, 
saying, Charge the people to go round, 
and encompass the city ; and let your 
men of war pass on armed before the 
Lord. ^And let seven priests having 
seven ^ sacred trumpets pro- + Gr. (t6.\.

and let them sound loudly ;

manded the people, saying. Cry not 
out, nor let any one hear your voice,

cry out. ' ' And the ark of the covenant 
of God having gone round imme- 
diately returned into the camp, and 
lodGjed there. '^And on the second 
day Joshua rose up in the mornmg,

covenant of the Lord. '^ And the seven 
priests bearing the seven trumpets went 
on before the Lord ; and afterwards the 
men of war went on, and the remainder 
of the mukitude went after the ark of 
the covenant of the Lord, and the 
priests sounded with the trimipets. 
'^And all the rest of the multitude 
compassed the city six times from 
witliin a short distance, and went back 
again into the camp ; this they did six 
days. ^'^ And on the seventh day they 
rose up early, and compassed the city 
on that day seven times. ^^And it 
came to pass at the seventh circuit the 
priests blew the trumpets ; and Joshua 
said to the children of Israel, Shout, 
for the Lord has given you the city. 
'''And the city shall be Me voted, it

do ye save Raab the harlot, and all 
things in her house. '** But keep your-

of the accursed thing, and ye make the 
camp of the children of Israel an 
accursed thing, and destroy us. '^ And 
all the silver, or gold, or brass, or iron,

■■^•^and the priests sounded with the 
trumpets; and when the people heard 
the trumpets, all the people shouted at 
once with a loud and strong shout; 
and all the wall fell round about, and 
all the people went up into the city: 
'''' and Joshua devoted it to destruc- 
tion, and all things that were in the 
city, man and woman, young man and 
old, and calf and ass, with the ^ edge of 

+ Gr. mouth, thc sword. '^"^ And Joshua 
said to the two young men Avho had 
acted as spies. Go into the house of the 
woman, and bring her out thence, and 
all that she has. ^^ And the two young 
men who had spied out the city entered 
into the house of the woman, and 
brought out liaab the harlot, and her 
fatlier, and her mother, and her bre- 
thren, and her kindred, and all tliat 



she had; and they set her without the 
camp of Israel. '^'*And thc city was 
burnt with fire "svith all tilings that 
were in it ; only of the silver, and 
gold, and brass, and iron, they gave 
to be brought into the treasury of the 
Lord. '^'^ And Joshua saved alive 
Raab the harlot, and all the house of 
her father, and caused her to dwell 
in Israel until this day, because she 
hid the spies which Joshua sent to 
spy out Jericho. ^^And Joshua adjured 
them on that day before the Lord, 
saying. Cursed he the man who shall 
build that city: he shall lay the foun- 
dation of it in his first-born, and he 
shall set up the gates of it in his young- 
est son : and so did Hozan of Bajthel ; 
he laid the foundation in Abiron his 
first-born, and set up the gates of it in

^^ And the Lord was with Joshua, and 
his name was in all the land. 

7. But thc children of Israel com- 
mitted a great trespass, and purloined 
part of the accursed thing ; and Acliar 
the son of Charmi, the son of Zambri, 
the son of Zara, of the tribe of Juda, 
took of the accursed thing ; and the 
Lord was very angry with the cliildren 
of Israel. ^And Joshua sent men to 
Gai, which is by Baathel, saying. Spy 
out Gai: and the men went up and 
spied Gai. ^And tliey returned to 
fJoshua, and said to him. Let not all 
the people go up, but let about two or 
three thousand men go iip and take 
the city by siege : carry not up thither 
the whole people, for the enemy arc 
few. ' vVnd there went up about three 
thousand men, and they fied from 
before tlie men of Gai. ■''And the men 
of Gai slew of tliem to thc number of 
tliirty-six men, and they pursued them 
from thc gate, and destroyed them 
from the steep hill ; and the heart of 
the people was alarmed and became as 
water.' /' And Joshua tore liis garments ;

said, I pray, Lord, wherefore has thy

shall I say since Israel has turned his 
back before his enemy? ^And when 
the Chananite and all the inhabitants 
of the land hear it, they shall compass 
us round and destroy us from off the 
land; and what wilt thou do for thy 
great name? '''And the Lord said to 
Joshua, Eise up, why hast thou fallen 
upon thy face? ''The people has 
sinned and transerressed the covenant

stolen from the cursed thing and put 
it into their store. '^And the chil-
